Israel honors 9-11 Victims with 9-11 Memorial
This is so amazing. It took an artist outside the United States to create this masterpiece. Sadly, due to cultural Marxism during the past half-century, Americans have been stymied for years, no longer capable of making meaningful memorials. ~C.D.
This is Israel’s memorial to 9/11.
It is called the 9/11 Living Memorial Plaza.
Completed in 2009 for $2 million, it sits on 5 acres of hillside, 20 miles from the center of Jerusalem.
The memorial is a 30-foot, bronze American flag.
That forms the shape of a flame to commemorate the flames of the Twin Towers.
And includes this engraving in Hebrew and English.
Surrounding the monument are plaques with the names of the victims of 9/11.
“This metal remnant was taken from the remains of the Twin Towers, that imploded on
September 11th disaster. It was sent over to Israel by the City of New York to be
incorporated in this memorial. This metal piece, like the entire monument, is a
manifestation of the special relationship between New York and Jerusalem.”
It is the only memorial outside the U.S. that includes the names of all who perished in the terrorist attacks.
Including 5 Israeli citizens.
The site solemnly overlooks Jerusalem’s largest cemetery, Har HaMenuchot.
The monument is often used for memorial and commemoration services.
