Yom Hazikaron Siren

Yom Hazikaron Siren

The entire country will come to a standstill at 8:00pm Tuesday night and again at 11:00am Wednesday to remember the soldiers and terror victims who have died for the State of Israel. A single siren will ring throughout the country and it is a very intense experience.

Cars will stop on the road and people will stand in silence to remember those that have died for the establishment and existence of the State of Israel.

By law all businesses related to entertainment and many restaurants will be closed for the day. There will be special shows on the television about fallen soldiers and victims of terror.

The main commemoration event takes place at Har Herzl.
