The ceremony began as a memorial for the children in the OneFamily youth division, but grew in recent years to include the entire family of OneFamily.
Just as Israel moves from the darkness of Memorial Day to the freedom of Independence Day, OneFamily helps families overcome the despair of terror and return to the joy of independence.
Thank you for your earnest care and concern for victims of terror throughout the year.
