November 29, 1947 was a historical day for the state of Israel. The UN decided to end the British Mandate and establish two states in Israel: Jewish and Arab. Following the UN resolution, the conflict escalated between the Jews and Arabs — and since then, harsh wars have occurred, and Israel has suffered from countless terror attacks where many civilians were injured and killed.
In 2014, the state of Israel decided to commemorate those injured in the wars and terror attacks on the 17th of Kislev (month in the Jewish calendar), which was the Jewish date of November 29, 1947. This day gives us the opportunity to cherish all those who experienced the horrors, stayed alive, and continue to carry physical and emotional scars. Entire families who crashed in an instant and lost their earning ability now deal with a long rehabilitation process and need our support.
Vision for Israel embraces the terror victims and works to do everything possible to help them.
