Even though Marcia Klein calls herself a simple Jew from Jerusalem, she is a woman of action who took the initiative to build a project during the long, hot days of the summer of 2014, when war was raging in Gaza.The project involved the Yvel jewelry factory, located on the outskirts of Jerusalem; Ethiopian immigrant craftsmen and craftswomen of the Megemeria School of Jewelry and Design, located within the Yvel complex; and the modern technology of Facebook. The result was 75 pendants, made to bring comfort to the mothers of the three murdered yeshiva students and the 72 IDF soldiers who fell in Operation Protective Edge.
