The Jewish National Fund will host a series of events in Israel and the United States to commemorate the attacks of September 11, 2001, and to emphasize the shared values of peace, religious tolerance and democracy between Israel and the US.

Here, thousands of citizens will join Ambassador David Friedman, local officials and US war veterans at the 9/11 Living Memorial in Jerusalem’s Ramot neighborhood to express gratitude to American first-responders for their contributions and sacrifices.

The memorial was built in 2009 and donated by JNF World Chairman’s Council member Edward Blank to eternalize the memories of those who killed during the attacks.

Thousands of Israelis and tourists visit the memorial annually to pay respects. Designed by Jerusalem artist Eliezer Weishoff, it is the only place outside the US that recognizes the names of all the people killed on 9/11.

“We are very pleased to recognize our brave first-responders for their contributions and sacrifices to our nation and to our local communities and to share our mutual respect while we honor those who fell during the attacks,” said Blank.

Abroad, Jewish National Fund will host public tributes in Baltimore, Beverly Hills, and San Francisco as well as in Long Island and Westchester, New York. The US events are being planned in coordination with the Israeli Embassy.

Hundreds of students, rabbis, synagogue members and JNF leadership members are expected to attend those events, which are meant to thank local first-responders by presenting their officials and fire stations with a plaque bearing an image of JNF’s 9/11 Living Memorial in Jerusalem.
