We hope that the sane silent majority, which has sounded its voice following the murder of our daughter, Shira, will find the strength and build a healthier and more moderate society in which the loud, radical minorities are pushed to the margins.
Our goal is to promote a better, more balanced and moral society, which sees the individual as part of the public and grants every person his or her place.
