Stand with Israel: International Memorial Ceremony
Sunday, 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM
November 5, 2023
International Memorial Ceremony
On Saturday, October 7, 2023, coinciding with the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah, the Israel we had always known changed. A surprise attack by the terrorist organization Hamas claimed the lives of our friends, relatives, and loved ones on that fateful day. This day will forever be etched in our hearts and in the history of the State of Israel and the Jewish people.
Thirty days after this brutal massacre, which marked the beginning of the “Iron Swords” campaign, we will hold a special international memorial service to honour the memory of our fallen servicemen and servicewomen and those who were murdered. We will also call for the release of the captives.
The main international ceremony will be held at the National Institutions Building in Jerusalem.
Yeshurun and YAM will connect to the event, which will be live-streamed for all participating communities around the world. Following the live-stream, we will hold a memorial service lead by Rabbi Chaim Burman.
