While all of Israel will commemorate the Jewish State’s Memorial Day beginning Monday evening, family members of fallen IDF soldiers mark the solemn day in their own way thanks to an Israeli NGO.

On Monday night and Tuesday, Israelis will pay tribute to the soldiers who fell defending their country. Sadly, too many Israelis continue to mourn their lost family members who have been killed while defending the Jewish state.

‘Or l’mishpachot’ (Light for Families) is an Israeli organization that provides comfort and support to grieving friends and family members of fallen soldiers.

Watch and learn about how these families mark this solemn day and how this incredible NGO is helping them through their grief.
