Families of Israeli 9/11 Victims Mourn in Jerusalem

A memorial ceremony was held Wednesday in Jerusalem for Israeli victims of the September 11th attacks. The five Israeli victims in the attacks were Daniel Lewin, age 31, Leon Lebor age 51, Hagai Shefi, age 34, Shai Levinhar, age 29 and Alona Avraham, age 30.

Victims who retained citizenships from outside the United States could be identified by nationality. However because the United States government does not track its citizens by religion, it cannot be confirmed whether a victim was Jewish, Muslim, Christian or another faith.
According to the Jewish Week, between 400 and 500 out of the 2,977 victims were Jewish.
Although last names are not considered reliable indicators of ethnicity or religion, a brief perusing of the list of victims reveals the following names: James Patrick Berger, Steven Howard Berger, John P. Bergin, Alvin Bergsohn, Daniel D. Bergstein, William Bernstein, Roberta Bernstein, Shimmy D. Biegeleisen, Florence Cohen, Kevin Sanford Cohen,  Eric Adam Eisenberg, Peter Feidelberg, Alan D.
