In honor of 9/11, the Jewish National Fund and students from the Sababa chapter of United Synagogue Youth from Congregation Etz Chaim in East Cobb paid tribute to their nearby firefighters of Cobb County Fire Station 21.
They held a ceremony remembering the heroes who fell in the attacks and expressing gratitude for current first responders.
JNF and the students brought pizza and presented the firefighters with a large framed image of Israel’s 9/11 Living Memorial. The Jerusalem memorial, built by JNF, was donated to Israel in 2009. It is the only one outside of the U.S. that lists the names of each person killed in the 9/11 attacks. It represents a deep connection and shared values between the people of Israel and the U.S. – freedom, democracy, religious tolerance, and value for human life.
