It was very very crowded- tens of thousands of Israelis and families of the fallen make an annual pilgrimage on this day to unite again with and honor the fallen heroes. It was instructive and inspiring to see how they honored the memory and sat in quiet solitude or shared stories and words of comfort and inclusion and strength. nnI learned about Jews who served in the two World Wars and about the sacrifices and losses of Ethiopian Jews in their noble steps to reach this Holy Land. nnI did not visit the area of national founders and leaders- that fired less for me than seeing rows and rows and rows and rows of final resting place of 19 year old boys. nnMY TIPnGo with a guide

In this Park/National Cemetery is located Hetzl monument and ALL israeli soldiers that have given their lifes in all wars.nI think it's important to see it and understand the sacrifice of the Jewish people for their own country.
