Yizkereim

All Day

As we prepare to joyously celebrate the 70th anniversary of Israel, we must remember that without the 23,632 soldiers and security forces who sacrificed their lives defending and protecting our people and our land, we would not be privileged to celebrate Yom Haatzmaut.

Our shul is participating in Yizkereim: Honor Israel’s Fallen, a global project designed to honor the memory of the 23,632 fallen heroes who sacrificed their lives defending and protecting the land of Israel, thereby making its upcoming 70th anniversary a reality. 

Olami, in partnership with The Afikim Foundation and Israel’s Ministry of Diaspora Affairs has created a website where visitors can ‘adopt’ a fallen hero and perform a positive action in his/her memory (chesed, Torah study, tzedaka, or prayer).

Our shul has reserved a block of 250 heroes. Please help keep their memories alive.
The custom link to our block can be accessed by clicking the button below. Login, read the short bio of a fallen hero and pledge a meaningful action to honor his/her memory.

A virtual candle will be lit on the website for each action pledged. A digital file of all actions will be kept at Har Herzl.

For any questions, please speak to our Yizkereim project team: 

Anne and Sheldon Golombeck
Rebecca and Doni Kessler
Lyvia and Marc Rottenberg
Malky and Jay Spector

In addition, we will be making a Mishebeirach for the kedoshim on Shabbat Shmini the 14th of April at Mincha, Monday Shacharit the 16th of April(at all 5 minyanim) and Thursday Shacharit the 19th of April(at all 5 minyanim). Please bring the gabbai the name of the Kadosh/Kedoshim you and your family has honored. 
We will also be setting up yartzheit candles in the lobby the night and morning of Yom Hazikaron and we encourage you to come light a candle in the memory of the kadosh you have commited to memorialize.
