This is the Memorial to 9/11 located in the 9/11 Living Memorial Plaza in Israel.
Completed in 2009, it sits on 5 acres of hillside, 20 miles from the center of Jerusalem.
The memorial is a 30 foot bronze American flag…
…that flows up into the shape of a flame to commemorate the burning Twin Towers.
The base of the monument is made of melted steel from the wreckage of the World Trade Center.
And includes this engraving in Hebrew…
…and in English.
Surrounding the monument are plaques with the names of every single victim of 9/11.
It is the only memorial outside the US that includes the names of all who perished in the terrorist attacks…including 5 Israeli citizens.
The monument is often used for memorial and commemoration services.
A powerful memorial from a loyal ally of America.
The site solemnly overlooks Jerusalem’s largest cemetery, Har HaMenuchot.
