Stones with a human heart

Honoring the memories of fallen IDF soldiers and victims of terror.
Make your own decorated stone
We will have it placed on your beloved soldier’s grave on your behalf.

Our story

In early 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual Yom Hazikaron memorial ceremonies honoring fallen Israeli soldiers were cancelled due to the lockdown, making it impossible for bereaved families to visit the cemetery and pay their respects to their loved ones. This unfortunate situation prompted the “Navah” organization to act and create the inspiring project “Stones with a Human Heart.”

The project’s primary goal is to identify with and support bereaved families by placing decorated stones, adorned with messages of love and support, on the graves of fallen IDF soldiers. Through this initiative, the “Navah” organization hopes to honor the memory of these fallen heroes and offer solace to their families during this difficult time.

The project’s success has exceeded all expectations, leading the “Navah” organization to open the initiative to Jewish communities worldwide and enable every bereaved family to transfer a beautifully designed stone to Israel to be placed on their loved one’s grave by our volunteers.

“Whenever I speak of him, I remember him more” Jeremiah 31:19

Families who do not live in Israel can easily order a stone, which will placed on their loved one’s grave by our volunteers with utmost respect and reverence.

Join us in spreading the word about this heartwarming initiative and help us comfort bereaved families worldwide. Together, we can ensure that the memory of Israel’s fallen soldiers lives on forever.
