9/11 Living Memorial in Jerusalem

On September 11, 2013, JNF honored and remembered the lives of nearly 3,000 innocent men, women and children who died at the hands of terrorists 12 years ago. At 11AM local time in Jerusalem, KKL and JNF held a memorial ceremony at the site of the 9/11 Living Memorial, honoring the memories of the victims. The ceremony was attended by H. E. Daniel B. Shapiro, Ambassador of the United States of America, ambassadors from around the world, representatives of the Israeli families who lost their loved ones in the attacks, and others. Photos and video of the event still to come.

Here is a video from last year's ceremony:


It is the only place outside of the United States that recognizes the names of the people who were killed on 9/11 as well as their countries of origin. 
“Set against the magnificent backdrop of Jerusalem, the Living Memorial is a moving site from which to mourn the victims of 9/11 as well as consider the thousands of victims of terrorism worldwide. This is a place for visiting dignitaries -- presidents, prime ministers, ambassadors, and citizens of the world -- to come together to remember, reflect and heal. More than anything we hope that this Living Memorial will remind us to reaffirm our commitment to tolerance, the unity of mankind, and democracy. Jerusalem is a battleground of civilization but also a place of hope; what better place to show that civilization won?" - Russell Robinson, CEO, Jewish National Fund

U.S. Ambassador to Israel James Cunningham attended the ceremony dedicating the monument, as did U.S. Congressman Erik Paulsen, who led a delegation from the United States. They were joined by Israeli Cabinet ministers, Knesset members and many families of the victims of 9/11, as well as other distinguished guests.
