You can create a Tribute page to show your support for JNF's 9/11 Living Memorial in Jerusalem.

The 9/11 Living Memorial, located in Jerusalem’s Arazim Park, commemorates the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks and stands as a reminder of shared loss and a call for collective understanding. The monument, which was dedicated by Jewish National Fund (JNF) on November 12, 2009, is one of the first major international memorials to the victims of the attacks and the only site outside of New York that lists the names of the nearly 3,000 men, women, and children who perished.

Designed by award-winning Israeli artist Eliezer Weishoff, the 30-foot high bronze sculpture is composed of an American flag transforming into a memorial flame. It rests on a granite base that includes a metal beam from the wreckage of the Twin Towers, generously donated to the Jerusalem Municipality by the City of New York. Surrounding the sculpture is a crater-like stone plaza lined with metal plates that bear the names of those who lost their lives in New York, D.C., and Pennsylvania. Amphitheater-style benches along the interior provide visitors with space for viewing and reflection.
