Dear Peres Family,
We are writing to express our condolences for the loss of your father and grandfather, Shimon Peres. He was part of Israel's founding history and an elder statesman of international acclaim. But his greatest legacy is the future he worked tirelessly to achieve, for you, his children and grandchildren, and for all Israelis. We, supporters of the New Israel Fund, are committed to working for that vision of Israel as a shared society at peace with its neighbors and at peace with itself.
A week after his passing, we remember President Peres’s legacy. He was not afraid to make unpopular choices in the pursuit of a better future for Israel. He was committed to peace. He believed in equality for all Israelis. And he invested in Israel's future by fostering initiatives that brought Jewish and Arab students together to model life in a shared society.
President Peres was the last of his generation. And we mourn his passing. We believe that he would be proud of the many Israelis, young and old, who work passionately to fashion a better Israel.
