In the Jewish Center, the events for Memorial Day for soldiers killed in action and for terrorism victims open with reciting the Yizkor prayer, in remembrance of those who lost their lives and with viewing the government ceremony on Mount Herzl, in Jerusalem. Memorial Day is both meaningful and important for the Israeli students who served in Tzahal. Some even served in various special units. In the course of the evening, the students share personal experiences and stories with their friends – stories about themselves and their friends, acquaintances and family members who were lost in the wars and different military operations that the State of Israel went through. It is a tense and sensitive atmosphere. Israeli identity becomes ever stronger, and the feeling of unity and the mutual Israeli destiny intensifies and binds the students together.
