Preparations are already underway forYom HaZikaron, Israel’s Memorial Day, which begins tonight at sundown in the Holy Land.
Earlier this week Prime Minister Netanyahu met with Israel Defense Forces (IDF) orphans. Five of these children lost their fathers during Operation Protective Edge last summer. During the gathering in his office, they discussed what it’s like to lose a close relative in a war or other military operation. The prime minister shared how he coped with losing his brother Yoni in Operation Entebbe in 1976.
