Israeli Headlines on Yom Hazikaron 5771 / 2011


As expected, the Israeli media is concentrating its headlines of today's “Yom Hazikaron – Memorial Day of Fallen Soldiers and Terror Victims". There will be a further nationwide siren sound in about half an hour (at 11am). Afterwards various memorial events are going to take place. The biggest one at the cemetery on Mount Herzl (Har Herzl) in Jerusalem. 

Jewish joy and suffering have always been close to each other. Today we are commemorating our fallen soldiers and tonight, right after sunset, we are celebrating Israel's 63 Independence Day. Not everyone is celebrating but lets say you do: The biggest event is going to take place in front of the Tel Aviv Municipality at Kikar Rabin tonight. Younger people rather prefer wild parties in the Tel Aviv Florentin neighbourhood.
