Remembering Israel’s Fallen Heroes Virtually on Yom HaZikaron

Every year on Yom HaZikaron (Israel’s Remembrance Day), Israelis are united under a shroud of mourning, honoring those who died to ensure the independence of Israel and the safety of its citizens.

This year especially, all around the world, ceremonies won’t be held due to COVID-19, making it even more challenging to honor fallen heroes.

Yashar LaChayal and Helping Israel Fund have partnered to create a platform that allows  all of Israel’s fallen to be remembered.

“Remembering Israel’s Fallen” is a project that matches each participant with one of 23,740 men and women who fell in Israel’s defense, so not a single soldier is forgotten. As the memorial siren wails in Israel, candles will be lit and prayers will be said around the world in a campaign of unity and remembrance.

Every participant will be emailed a certificate with the unique name of one of Israel’s fallen, and it will be his or her privilege to remember that soldier on Memorial Day. On Israel’s 70th Memorial Day, join in remembering those who gave so much and for the State of Israel.

In addition to the meaningful campaign, participants can choose to donate to the “Bereaved Family Fund” which provides various forms of support to financially disadvantaged family members of fallen soldiers. In the past, the organization has sponsored groceries during the holidays, household appliances, furniture, and other types of assistance for bereaved families.

Yom HaZikaron 2020 in Israel will begin in the evening of Monday, April 27 and ends in the evening of Tuesday, April 28.
