4,000 Jewish youths and 3,000 Jewish community leaders from around the world come together to honor memory of Israel’s fallen soldiers, among them lone soldiers who came from abroad and sacrificed their lives for Israel.

Thousands of Jews from around the world came together on Tuesday evening to honor Israel’s fallen soldiers, members of security forces and terror victims in a special memorial service in English.

The ceremony for Diaspora Jews, which is organized by Masa Israel Journey, took place at the IDF Armored Corps’ Memorial Site in Latrun.

Education and Diaspora Affairs Minister Naftali Bennett and Jewish Agency director and Israel Prize laureate Natan Sharansky joined bereaved families, 3,000 Jewish community leaders and 4,000 Jewish youths from the world over to remember the fallen.

“The ceremony we’re holding will allow young Diaspora Jews to be real partners in a day that carries immense weight in Israeli society,” said Liran Avisar Ben Horin, the CEO of Masa Israel Journey.

“The ceremony, in its unique format, has over the years become an emotional memorial service in which Diaspora Jews bow their heads along with the entire nation of Israel in memory of the fallen,” Ben Horin continued.
