Remembering Israel’s Fallen Soldiers And Terror Victims

Remembering Israel's Fallen Soldiers and Terror Victims

Join us in remembering them


In commemoration of Yom Hazikaron, Israel's Memorial Day, please join us for two meaningful ceremonies.

On this day, the Jews of the Diaspora unite in grief with all the residents of the State of Israel. And here, too, in Israel, we are united in grief with the Jewish families in the Diaspora.

We are inspired by you Israelis — proud Israeli soldiers and citizens. You never back away from a fight and we aren’t going to either. We are stronger together, in Pittsburgh, in the United States, and here in Israel.
