Recently, Tikva Levy, the director of the Hila for Equality in Education organization, passed away. One of Tikkun Olam's volunteering places, Hila seeks to empower weaker populations and encourage educational equality through grassroots advocacy.
Rachel Smith, who recently completed the 10-month Tikkun Olam Coexistence Track program, posted this to her blog in memory of Tikva: http://werdtothewise.tumblr.com/post/28873887525/tikva-levi-remembered
A few months back, Rachel also wrote a story for Ynet (Israel's biggest news website) about the Hila organization: http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-4175666,00.html
