A memorial ceremony for the over 3000 victims of the September 11th, 2001 terror attacks in New York and Washington is being held at the Jewish National Fund 9/11 Living Memorial.

Ronald Lauder, Chairman of JNF-USA:

"On September 11th, 2001, Americans showed a great courage and bravery, risking and giving their lives to save people that they never met. This is a courage that Israelis can understand. The soul of a free people will always rise over hate. Liberty will always triumph, because people fundamentally want to be free."
