She stated her belief that her survivor status obliges her to live her life "with love and hope for the future" - the same theme expressed in the mural's unique design.Lana Dishler, who will serve as 2009 Mitzvah Mania co-chair along with her husband, Bernie, Jacqueline Needleman and David Cohen and Simi Kaplin Baer and Marc Baer, said that this year's day of tzedakah and tikkun olam will focus on "helping our fellow Jews meet such critical needs as food, clothing, shelter and health CaTe."
