He never burst or argued against, but received things with understanding and love. Only his special eyes expressed his feelings. He was conspicuous in his persistence in his studies, in the fine and clean manner that characterized his notebooks. Even years later, when he grew up, Shalom was always ahead of his special smile. “Zion was a member of the Bnei Akiva youth movement and was one of the founders of the Ariel tribe in Beit Shean in the years 1980-1975, and he was outstanding in his personality and devotion to every task he undertook: The memorial service for the graduates of the tribe, the rehabilitation of the electricity system, the printing of a leaflet for the organization, the preparation of fire addresses, the organization of trips, etc. There was no room or activity that Zion did not impress upon them, All are the reasonable decisions that were made with respect. Everyone expressed his opinion, but without notice everyone agreed with Zion.
