About The Project
A Face. The Day. A Memorial is an online
commemorative project. Beit Avi Chai (Jerusalem) initiated the
project in which animation artists create unique memorial stories
of Israeli soldiers and victims of terror.
Recognizing the importance of Yom Hazikaron in Israeli society, Beit Avi
Chai identified the need to create a meaningful project that could impart
personal messages and tributes in a way that speaks to all Israelis,
connecting with thousands of people through the internet.
Yom Hazikaron is often a complex ceremony to program outside of Israel.
Local Israelis abroad often feel the need to share their unique feelings
while also questioning whether non-Israelis can fully understand these
sentiments. Non-Israelis tend to feel the need to participate in the
ceremony and identify fully, whilst at the same time feel emotionally
detached or even alienated. It is a highly-charged day.
