IDF Yom Hazikaron

"With the legacy of the fallen, we are charged to preserve the values that they adopted in their lives—courage and mental fortitude, responsibility and dedication, a sense of mission and belief in the righteousness of the way. The values that beat in the hearts of the fallen are the secret to the strength of the Israel Defense Force to this very day."
– IDF chief of staff Lt. General Gadi Eisenkot

This event honors the Day of Remembrance for the Fallen Soldiers of Israel and Victims of Terrorism. Participants will be required to carry the name, age, and date of death of a terror victim taped onto their weight. Participants will learn about famous IDF operations, such as the kidnapping of Adolf Eichmann, OPERATION THUNDERBOLT, OPERATION BLACK SEPTEMBER, and OPERATIONS SABENA 571, all while paying proper respects to the fallen with your team.
