The ceremony centered around the story of soldiers and civilians who came to Israel from all over the world and fell while serving the IDF or were killed in terror attacks.

This ceremony is the largest in Israel in English and is geared toward Diaspora Jewry and the Olim (new immigrant) communities in Israel.
