This past monday in school we celebrated a day called yom hazikaron which commemorates all the soldiers lost in Israel. This year it was ecspecially special for me because on December 2, 2010 I lost a teacher very close to my heart, Rabbi Malka z”l. Rabbi Malka came toDenver in 2006, and left in 2008back to Israel. Rabbi Malka was killedon a bus inIsrael trying to save prisioners when his bus caught fire.He waskilled leaving behind his wife, 5 children and one on the way.Rabbi Malka z”l wasn’t just a teacher, he was a friend and an insparation. He wouldalways be there for everyone, and when you were talking to him, it was as if you were the only personin the world weather you were the presedent ora simple person living in a modest home.He always had a smile on his face that lit up the world. It would always makeme feel better even in my hardest times tosee his smile.He would always tell stories ofheroes who risked their lives in war in Israel. He risked his life for prisioners. Thats who he was. Always putting everyoneelse first. And after he died, he too was a hero, just like the people he told us about. I will never forget him,he has left a mark on me forever.
