Thank you for the stories! As people who know someone who is buried in a cemetery in Israel, how do you feel about the decision not to allow family members and friends to come the cemeteries on Memorial Day?And another - do you think there's an extra meaning in visiting the cemeteries on Memorial Day or is it like visiting it on any other day?

I think the togetherness of going to the cemetery, followed by sharing a meal and time to tell stories and allow the memory to live is important. It's the legacy we're left with more than the actual grave for me...

Hi all,In this time of change and uncertainty, and since today's topic is particularly emotional, I want to share some of Hillel's support resources for students in case you or someone you know is in need: https://welcome.hillel.org/hillelathome/#lp-pom-block-574

Hi! Thank you for sharing. My question is why are Yom Hazikaron and Yom Haatzmaut back to back? Thank you!
Yosef Kazinik
50:51
correct me if I’m wrong, but Yom Haatzmaut is a celebration of the state that we have built. Yom Hazikaron represents the price we had to pay to build that state
Yosef Kazinik
51:27
that’s one of the connections exemplified in the two holidays being back to back

Clarification for everyone: in order to slow down the spread of COVID-19 in Israel, the government in Israel decided on a full lockdown during memorial day and independence day, to prevent big groups from going to military cemeteries

A comment from Leeya (Hillel @ Stanford), a family member of a fallen soldier: My family's approach is "we remember every day" and I see this symbolic day for a nation but less for us. I think we need to take this day to gather, to share the story, to sit with our pain - with or without seeing his grave specifically

I know this can be very difficult to speak about but thank you. It's very important. I really appreciate all of you. There is so much hope in Israel. We will need to remember the warriors each and everyday and be grateful that Israel does exist
