After returning to the US from his Israel trip on October 6th, Doron knew exactly what he needed to do – get back on a plane to Tel Aviv.

This war is a humbling experience for us all. People — no matter who they are or what they normally do — are simply trying to pitch in wherever they can. We’ve thus seen ex-generals jump into their private cars and go save civilians from the carnage of October 7th, former ministers and senior politicians volunteer to pick cherry tomatoes on farms near Gaza, and rock stars jam for a single soldier on an army base.

Likewise, Doron Krakow — the President and CEO of the JCC Association of North America, who in normal times runs an organization that employs tens of thousands of professionals — immediately got on a plane and came to Israel in order to do one thing: Be a grandpa.

The end song is “America” by Berry Sakharof and Rami Fortis. (Licensed by Israel Story through Acum.)
