Fallen IDF soldiers

In Israel, everyone has someone to remember on Memorial Day.

Today, all across the country, Israelis gather to memorialize the soldiers who have fallen defending Israel, and the civilians who were murdered in terror attacks.

While Memorial Day in the US is often celebrated as a fun weekend in the States, in Israel there isn’t anyone that doesn’t have someone to remember today.

Watch this video depicting different Israelis marking Memorial Day whilst remembering their lost loved ones. May their memory be a blessing.
