The Masa Yom HaZikaron Memorial Ceremony
May 3 @ 7:50 PM - 9:30 PM
Join us for the annual Masa Yom HaZikaron Memorial Ceremony.
On May 3rd, at 7:50 pm Israel time (12:50 pm EDT), the eve of Yom HaZikaron, we will commemorate IDF soldiers and victims of terror at the largest virtual ceremony for the Jewish world. For Israelis, this day is one of the most important of the year as we recognize those who sacrificed their lives for Israel. At Masa, we see it as our opportunity and responsibility to share the centrality of this day.
Our English-speaking ceremony is a chance for Jews from around the world to participate in a meaningful ceremony from a personal, communal and national perspective.
Commemorating Yom Hazikaron with Masa gives you the opportunity, what is classically understood as a uniquely Israeli day of mourning from a new vantage point.
The ceremony is streamed live online to 400,000 people and communities around the world. Our aim is to bring to light the personal stories of the fallen soldiers and victims of terror and to focus on the legacy and impact they so abruptly left behind. We believe that their stories are a part of the greater story of the Jewish People and our narrative. With this in mind, this year’s theme is “These Are Our Stories”.
Wherever you are in the world, join us and the Masa Community for this meaningful event, which will be live-streamed on our Facebook page. Our ceremony will commence together at the time of the siren of Yom HaZikaron in Israel, at 8:00 PM Israel time.
