Israel Memorial Day, Yom HaZikaron
Today is Israel Memorial Day, Yom HaZikaron - the day we remember our fallen brothers and sisters in Israel's military and the civilians murdered in terrorist attacks.
It should be a sad day for all of us, whether living in Israel or in the diaspora. They are defending the State of Israel, our ultimate Homeland. We forget that only 65 years ago, the Jews of Europe had nowhere to go - nowhere to run to - nowhere to hide. No country took them in. The State of Israel did not exist - and the British who administered the area did not allow Jews to enter.
The Land of Israel is our home of 3000+ years. The modern State of Israel is only a recent incarnation of what is already ours. We're here, and we're here to stay.
Please support One Family Fund, a great organization helping those individuals and families hurt by Arab terrorist attacks in Israel.
