SonShine Vision

Bringing light to the world in their memory, was founded by Bat-Galim and Ophir Shaer in memory of their son Gil-ad, one of the three boys kidnapped and murdered in the summer of 2014.

The organization was founded to enhance optimism and a sense of unity in Israel and throughout the world.  Its goal is to encourage a positive approach especially during times of crisis and challenge.

The organization has created various initiatives that contribute to unity, positive energy and attitudes within the Jewish people and is currently launching additional project in partnership with a wide spectrum of Jewish organizations who will implement these on a larger scale.

“We found inner strength during the 18 days when we did not know where the boys were and what had happened to the them.  As a nation and as individuals, we chose an optimistic attitude, even after learning of the boys’ fate.  We have to return to daily life, to go out and offer support where it is needed, anywhere in the world.”
