“And only the rememberer knows all that they could give.” ‘For the Fallen’ is a national venture founded by bereaved families, senior officers and patrol centers, with the aim of bringing participants together with the story of the country and the story of the heroism of IDF fighters who fell for it. It is a living commemorative enterprise, which connects the story of us all in this country.

The main activity of the project takes place during the week of heroism: between Holocaust Remembrance Day and Remembrance Day, and leads to a wide national movement of participants, who want to connect to these days significantly. The project creates a meeting between sectors and populations, through a value discourse that seeks to unite and bring together, especially in these days of memory and revival. The tours are led by representatives of bereaved families, retired senior officers and guides, and take place nationwide for the entire population free of charge and with prior registration.

Maj. Gen. Roni Noma, Chairman of a project for the fallen, who mobilized to lead the project, as part of the importance and value he sees in connecting the story of the fallen to the story of the land for which he fought, and the significant connection with the bereaved families: ‘For the Fallen’ is a national venture founded in 2018 by bereaved families, retired officers and tour centers in Lod and the Golan Heights, with the aim of bringing participants together with the story of the country and the story of the heroism of IDF fighters who fell for it.
