JNF and the US Embassy in Israel held a memorial ceremony in memory of those who perished in the September 11, 2001 tragedy at the memorial in the Arazim Valley in Jerusalem, in the presence of the US ambassador to Israel, Daniel Friedmann.
US Ambassador to Israel, David Friedman said: “Seventeen years ago, on a normal day like this, with a blue sky, a nation underwent a tremendous tragedy when about 3,000 people were killed in the barbaric attacks of September 11. Dear families, it is hard to imagine the endless pain you feel to this day. We are here together, the United States and Israel to prevent such disasters from happening in the future. We will not forget nor forgive.
