Yom Hazikaron, Israel’s Memorial Day, is a solemn day on which Israelis remember those they have lost in the years of war and conflict. Traditionally, the Palestinian narrative is erased, leading both sides into deeper despair. By acknowledging the pain of those living on the other side, the Joint Israeli-Palestinian Memorial Day Ceremony, hosted by Combatants for Peace and The Parents Circle–Families Forum, is a ceremony that attempts to acknowledge the pain on all sides, finding humanity and connection in experiences of grief and loss, and charting a path of respect, justice, and freedom – and ultimately peace. Nehar Shalom has co-sponsored this ceremony for many years, and our members have found it to be a meaningful way to observe Yom Hazikaron.
