Remembering Together - Israel’s 76th Memorial Day

The commemoration and remembrance initiative for the fallen IDF soldiers, members of the security forces and the victims of terrorism in Israel and around the world.

The events of October 7th proved to us once again how strong the shared destiny and alliance of the State of Israel is with Diaspora Jewry. Along with the sharp and severe rise in anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism against the State of Israel and Diaspora Jewry, we have witnessed the enormous support of world Jewry for the State of Israel in its difficult times. This year more than ever, it is our duty to strengthen the resilience of the Jewish people and the existential bond between the State of Israel and the Jewish people for the future of the State of Israel as well as the Jewish people in Israel and the Diaspora.

On the State of Israel’s 76th Memorial Day, we will unite together as a people and as a country to commemorate and remember Jews who were victims of anti-Semitic hostilities around the world who are not citizens of Israel, and who lost their lives because of their Jewishness. They lost their lives alongside Israelis - citizens and soldiers, who defended us with their bodies and souls and were harmed and murdered by enemies whose only purpose is to destroy the State of Israel and the Jewish people. The events of October 7th constitute a historical milestone for the State of Israel and the entire Jewish people.

We call on everyone to commemorate Memorial Day with a ceremony of their own; whether it be with their synagogue, school, community or family. You can find a complete Memorial Day ceremony on the 'Remembering Together' website that we created to enable commemorating our brothers and sisters who were murdered while defending our homeland and for victims of terrorism in Israel and in the Diaspora worldwide.

'Remembering Together' is a collaboration between the World Zionist Organization, the Ruderman Family Foundation, the Ministry for Diaspora Affairs and Combatting Antisemitism, the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This initiative will create a unifying mark of a shared destiny we will remember and perpetuate while strengthening the sense of solidarity and mutual guarantee. Our goal is to grow closer together and strengthen our resilience which will contribute to the prosperity and security of the Jewish people in Israel and the Diaspora.
