KKL-JNF, US embassy hold 9/11 memorial service outside Jerusalem

In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks, the Keren Kayemet Le’Israel-Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF), Jewish National Fund-USA (JNF-USA), and the US Embassy in Israel are holding a joint memorial service at the 9/11 Living Memorial Plaza in the Arazim Valley outside Jerusalem,

The service is being attended by US Charge d’Affaires Michael Ratney, Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion and former prime minister Ehud Olmert.

The annual ceremony, amid the waterfall pools and lines of trees on the National September 11 Memorial plaza, strives to be apolitical. Politicians can attend, but since 2011, they have not been allowed to read names or deliver remarks.
