Event Details

Join us at Temple Sinai on Sunday, May 12th, as we unite to honor the memory of those who have bravely served and sacrificed for the Jewish State, as well as those lost to senseless acts of terrorism. In addition to commemorating these heroes, we will also recognize the enduring connection our community shares with Israel.

Yom HaZikaron, or Israeli Memorial Day, stands as a solemn occasion preceding Israel’s Independence Day, Yom Haatzmaut. It serves as a poignant reminder for Israelis and Jewish communities worldwide to honor the sacrifices of fallen soldiers and victims of terrorism.

This year, the significance of coming together in grief and respect is amplified as we mourn the devastating loss of countless lives, particularly on October 7th and since, within our Jewish community.

The connection between our community and Israel is profound, and it is essential to acknowledge and strengthen this bond.

On this day, Israelis pause their daily activities for a two-minute standstill, marked by blaring sirens, to collectively pay homage to the fallen. This ritual, established by law in 1963, has evolved into a deeply ingrained aspect of Israeli culture, resonating globally.

As part of our tribute, we are honored to host two special guests, Hadiya and Eldad, who will share poignant stories of courage and sacrifice, offering glimpses into the lives of those we honor this day.

If you wish to memorialize a friend or family member who was a fallen Israeli soldier or victim of terror, kindly reach out to Nelly Ben Tal at nbental@jewishcolorado.org.

Let us stand together in remembrance and solidarity.
