Memorial Day:יום הזיכרון לחללי צה"ל
Thy glory Israel, is fallen upon the heights
How the mighty have fallen!
Mountains of Gilboa, let there be no dew, nor rain upon you, nor fields of offerings
For there is the shield of the mighty cast away…
From the blood of the slain, from the flesh of the mighty, the bow of Jonathan turned not back, and the sword of Saul returned not empty
Saul and Jonathan, they were lovely and pleasant in their lives, and in death they were not divided
They were swifter than eagles, they were stronger than lions…
How the mighty have fallen
And the weapons of war cast away
-Second Book of Samuel, 1:20-27
Blessed be the memory of the fallen.
