Re: “Lappin’s life and legacy to be honored along with 50 years of Y2I,” March 4, Jewish Journal.
I had the good fortune to meet this incredible gentleman and personally thank him for sending my three teenagers to Israel. And because of him, my eldest, who is now 24, has moved there! Mr. Lappin always encouraged Jewish youth to embrace their Jewish heritage and his plan to send them to “The Holy Land” to see for themselves what a beautiful country Israel is and how wonderful the people are, was brilliant. He will be missed greatly, but he will never, ever be forgotten.
