A ceremony in memory of Lt. Hadar Goldin was held Monday evening at the Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem. The event drew people from across the country to study and sing together in his honor.

Goldin was kidnapped and killed by Hamas terrorists during Operation Protective Edge five years ago. The terrorist organization has refused to return Goldin’s remains or those of Sgt. Oron Shaul, who was kidnapped at the same time.


“Hadar, in his life, believed in connections between people, and therefore it is exciting for us that people from all walks of life are coming to take part in the spirit of Hadar,” Tzur Goldin, Hadar’s twin brother, said this week.

His father, Simcha Goldin, said that bringing people close at such an event would not only remind people of his own son, lost in battle, but of the countless soldiers who serve on the battlefield in defense of the State of Israel.

The event comes only a week before the country commemorates the kidnapping and subsequent murder of three Israeli teenagers on June 12, 2014.

Gil-Ad Shaer, 16; Naftali Fraenkel, 16; and Eyal Yifrah, 19, were hitchhiking at a West Bank bus stop near the Israeli settlement of Alon Shvut when a Palestinian driver disguised as a Jew stopped and picked them up.
