Something Most People Don't Know

I didn't know this and I suspect that few people do.  Please share this because we need to always remember what a good friend that Israel has been to America

Subject: Fwd: Something Most People Don't Know
few knew this......

It is called the 9/11 Living Memorial Plaza.

Completed in 2009 for $2 million, it sits on 5 acres of 

hillside, 20 miles from the center of Jerusalem.

The memorial is a 30-foot, bronze American flag.

That forms the shape of a flame to commemorate 

the flames of the Twin Towers.

The base of the monument is made of melted steel 

from the wreckage of the World Trade Center.

And includes this engraving in Hebrew and English.
“This metal remnant was taken from the remains of the Twin Towers, that imploded on 
September 11th disaster. It was sent over to Israel by the City of New York to be 
incorporated in this memorial. This metal piece, like the entire monument, is a 
manifestation of the special relationship between New York and Jerusalem.”

Surrounding the monument are plaques 

with the names of the victims of 9/11.

It is the only memorial outside the U.S. that includes 

the names of all who perished in the terrorist attacks.

Including 5 Israeli citizens.

The site solemnly overlooks Jerusalem’s 

largest cemetery, Har HaMenuchot.


The monument is often used for memorial 

and commemoration services.

A powerful memorial from a powerful ally.
