Israeli innovators will team together in May to help improve the lives and ease the loneliness of Holocaust survivors today. Writers at The Times of Israel tell us more:

Israeli high-tech entrepreneurs will turn their attention to the plight of Holocaust survivors for 36 hours in May, seeking tech solutions to their needs and answers to the difficult questions of how to continue to commemorate the tragedy and educate future generations.

The four Israeli entrepreneurs behind the initiative, Nathan Leibzon, Erez Gavish, Anat Greemland and Alon Rapaport, have set up what they are calling the “Spark Hackathon” which will see entrepreneurs, developers, mentors from the tech world team up with Holocaust survivors and representatives of nonprofit organizations. Microsoft Israel is backing the initiative by sending mentors and offering its cloud services to the participants, along with accounting firm Ernst & Young Israel among others, according to the Hackathon website.

Holocaust Remembrance Day is this Thursday, April 12, and you can pledge today to stand with Israel against another Holocaust.

For a limited time, you can go one step further and add this FREE Israeli flag filter to your Facebook profile picture to show your friends that you Stand for Israel!
