Marsha Speaks to over a thousand Young People about Yoni

Marsha Gladstone mother of  Yoni Jesner, the 19 year old student killed in Israel in 2002 spoke to over a thousand  children across 7 Jewish secondary schools across the United Kingdom . Yoni was a truly inspiring young person who touched the lives of so many through his warmth and personality. Yoni was a straight ‘A’ student, Bnei Akiva Leader, tutor to younger students, the youngest volunteer at the Glasgow Jewish burial society and an aspiring medical student who secured a place to study medicine at UCL. He was an intern at Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem and went to study at Yeshiva in Israel on his gap year. Tragically, Yoni was killed in a bus bombing in Tel Aviv in 2002 at just 19 years of age. Yoni’s family established the Yoni Jesner Foundation and The Award Scheme’s aim is to uphold Yoni’s legacy and honour his memory.
