A Cup of Honey

“ In a chance meeting in the 1980’s, I had a discussion with Elie Wiesel, the famous Holocaust author, historian, and teacher. I told him that I had not been able to tell my story. He said that it was my obligation to speak out and to tell the world about the Holocaust. He told me that I had survived for a reason-to tell the world what had happened to my family and to me. 

Suddenly I remembered that my mother had once told me the same thing-that it was beshert, or meant to be, that I survive to tell the story of my family.” 

-Eliezer Ayalon

OUR INSPIRATION

ELI AYALON

Spill the Honey was inspired by Eliezer Ayalon, a Yad Vashem tour guide who is a model of recovering from trauma to become a messenger of hope.

The non-profit takes its name from the inspirational story of Eli Ayalon, a Holocaust survivor, who was gifted a cup of honey from his mother the final day she would see him before being sent by the Nazis to 5 concentration camps. The honey symbolized hope and survival. He came to understand the power of using his voice and telling his story to inspire others to not remain silent in the face of hate and dehumanization. Likewise, Dr. King used his voice and strength to love, transform and mobilize America's consciousness to recognize our shared humanity.
