Hillel at UCLA: Reflection on the recent Avi Schaefer Shabbat

Many know the general biography of Avi Schaefer. They know that he was thoroughly involved in Jewish youth groups and community work. They know that he joined the mahalim (volunteers from the Diaspora) with his twin after high school to volunteer in the Israel Defense Forces. They know that the global Jewish community mourned and continue to mourn his passing, so aware of the great community leader and friend they had just lost. But few know the details of Avi’s character that make his legacy so revered and so respected.
