We call him Amo Would you believe that I gave Avraham Meir Ostfeld the name AMO when he was playing with my son Shalom?

I'm glad Shmuly took the time to document Amo's involvement in the army. Reply

Some know my brother-in-law as Avraham Meir Ostfeld, but we call him Amo. He’s a member of the IDF, serving in an elite Golani brigade, and currently part of the Gaza operation.

The following are some notes I’ve jotted in recent days—my family’s communications with Amo, our feelings, and the various activities the Toronto community has undertaken in his merit.

If these words inspire you to do a mitzvah or pray for Avraham Meir ben Leah Naomi Ostfeld – along with all the courageous members of the IDF, and all our brethren in the Holy Land – then they have not been written in vain!
