In honor of Remembrance Day, which begins on the evening of May 5 2014, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem will remember the fallen — our friends, sisters, brothers, students and staff — who were killed in Israel's wars, and who through their deaths, gave us life. The University also remembers those who were murdered in terrorist attacks.

Remembrance Day ceremonies are being held at the Hebrew University’s Faculty of Agriculture in Rehovot and Edmond J. Safra campus (in Givat Ram).  

Rehovot campus: Sunday, May 4 at 10 a.m., on the lawn in front of the Kennedy Leigh Building

Edmond J. Safra campus: Monday, May 5 at 9:30 a.m., at the Memorial Plaza

The university invites the public to visit a special memorial page commemorating our fallen, both in wars and in terror attacks, at http://new.huji.ac.il/yizkor.

A special page dedicated to our staff and students murdered in the July 31, 2002 terror attack on the Mount Scopus campus can be seen at http://memorial.huji.ac.il/eng-open.html. Killed in that attack were Revital Barashi, Marla Bennett, Benjamin Blutstein, Dina Carter, Janis Ruth Coulter, David Gritz, David (Diego) Ladowski, Levina Shapira, and Daphna Spruc.
