Dancing Through Life

On November 18th, 2023, the world lost a hero – Binyamin Airley. At the young age of 21, Binyamin fought valiantly in Gaza before sacrificing his life in defense of Israel – and each one of us. It’s hard to imagine that the sweet, smiling Binyamin has been so cruelly and violently taken from us.

For many years, his family has been a big part of Israel365. Rabbi Tuly and the team watched Binyamin grow up and become a role model for our own children. When we heard the terrible news, we knew we had to honor him. But how?

Binyamin had a smile that lit up the room and a personality that brought joy to all who knew him. He was a happy young man who loved to dance. Though we are broken over his loss, we realized that the only way to properly honor him was to bring joy to others – and party like only Binyamin knew how!

Partnering with the Yavneh School of Los Angeles, we ran a “Dance Through Life” dance party in Jerusalem with over 400 women in attendance! The party was open to all women- be it miluim wives, mothers of soldiers, and young professionals.

There was delicious food, such as pizza, salad, fruit and fun cocktails. The festivities also included a raffle with amazing prizes for the women, with gift cards for manicures, pedicures, restaurants, and more. But the highlight of the night was the incredible DJ, whose music brought energy to the party, and let the women really enjoy a true night of just fun.

This party not only honored Binyamin but also brought joy to so many women currently struggling with the war that has been ravaging Israel for the past 5 months. It was the chance these women needed to let out their stress and come together to support each other – and to just have a great time.

But all of this was only possible because of you! With your generous support, we were able to subsidize the party to ensure that women from all over Israel could attend this energetic evening and dance the night away. Thank you!
