A different Yom HaZikaron Ceremony

A different Yom HaZikaron Ceremony

We share with you a ceremony that we created for JW3 in London, with the help of the animation films made by Bet Avi Chai. We looked to build a ceremony that placed its emphasis on the pain and loss of the civilian survivors, and less on the war-time experience of the fighters.

Yom HaZikaron is often a complicated ceremony to program outside of Israel. Local Israelis in the community will often feel the need to share their unique feelings on the one hand, and yet find themselves questioning the possibility that non-Israelis might fully understand them on the other hand. Non-Israelis will often feel the need to share in the ceremony and identify fully, whilst at the same time feeling emotionally detached or even alienated. It is a very sensitive day!

In this way we believe there is more potential for a shared emotional common ground.
