Memorial Day | Yom Hazikaron

Background

 Yom Hazikaron is Israel’s national Remembrance Day to commemorate the country’s fallen soldiers and victims of terror. Yom Hazikaron has been marked since 1951. As of May 2016, the number of fallen soldiers was 23,447. Yom Hazikaron falls on the day before Yom Ha’atzma’ut (Israel’s Independence Day), in order to remind people of the heavy price paid for independence and of what has been achieved with the soldiers' sacrifice.
