IDF Memorial Day

Ahead of Yom Hazikaron, consider honoring Israel’s fallen heroes by doing acts of kindness in their memory.

Yom Hazikaron, Israel’s Memorial Day, is a time to remember those who lost their lives during the struggle for Israel’s independence, as well as the soldiers who died while serving in Israel’s armed forces and victims of terror attacks.

There is hardly a family in Israel that does not have a relative or friend who died in service to the nation.

As we prepare to celebrate 72 years since the creation of the State of Israel, it’s important that people from around the world take time to remember the 23,786 soldiers and security forces that sacrificed their lives for Israel’s existence.

“Yizkereim: Honor Israel’s Fallen” (“Yizkereim” in Hebrew means remember them) is a project that enables anyone to honor the fallen by taking upon themselves at least one kind or sacred act done in memory of one of the fallen.

The project has collected thousands of acts of “chesed,” kindness, be they public service, prayer, Torah learning or giving  charity, by anyone anywhere in the world, in the memory of the fallen.

Yizkereim is designed to keep each soldier’s memory alive with positive actions done in their memory.

When reports of these actions are posted on a specially designated website, bereaved families can read about these acts done in their loved one’s name.

Each act of kindness leaves a “lit” virtual candle “burning” on the website.

Visitors to the site can read about the lives of the fallen, what their families and friends said about them, their passions, their personalities, their hopes and aspirations.

The campaign was initiated by Olami, an organization promoting “Jewish greatness” on campus.

This project is a rare opportunity to honor Israelis who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

We invite you to do something positive – an act of kindness or charity – in honor of Israel’s fallen and heroes.

Honor the IDF’s Fallen Heroes!
