Today is YOM HAZIKARON (Remembrance Day) for our fallen soldiers.
The siren was heard last night at 20:00 and this morning at 11:00. During the siren, traffic stops, everything stops, and everyone stands in silence to remember and honor our fallen soldiers. Ceremonies are held in military cemeteries, schools and other places all over the country. Everyone is united in remembering the price we pay for our independence. Yom HaZikaron ends when Independence Day celebrations begin.
