Yom HaZikaron - Israel Memorial Day

On the day preceding Israel's Independence Day, we commemorate Yom HaZikaron, Israel's Memorial Day, remembering those who fell as soldiers defending Israel and as victims of Arab Terror.

We remember 3,169 fallen soldiers and 2,495 terror victims - our brothers, our sisters, our mothers and fathers - we are all part of one family. We thank those soldiers for making it possible to live in the Holy Land. We thank those who were murdered as terror victims for making a stand by living in the State of Israel. We cry the same as if we knew each of them.

On this solemn day, please take a moment to support these great organizations (this is just a short list of many worthwhile places to donate to):
One Family Fund - supporting those who have been affected by Arab Terror
Friends of LIBI - supporting the needs of Israeli soldiers
Friends of the Israel Defense Forces - supporting the needs of Israeli soldiers
Friends of Israel Disabled Veterans (Beit HaLochem USA)
Aid to Disabled Veterans of Israel (Beit HaLochem Canada)

We pray for those who have lost their lives and for their families.

PM: ‘We would not be here without their sacrifice’
