Remembrance Day to Include Jews Worldwide

Jewish victims of terrorism from around the world will be remembered in the 2008 Remembrance Day ceremonies, officials said Sunday.  The Knesset committee for ceremonies and symbols is expected to approve the suggestion on Monday.

Approximately 200 Jews who were targeted due to their Jewish identity will be remembered in the ceremonies.  Several Diaspora Jewish groups had encouraged the government to include all Jewish victims in the ceremonies.
