Stones with a human heart

Honoring the memories of fallen IDF soldiers and victims of terror.
Create your own decorated stone and we will place it on a grave on your behalf.

About us

Our project, “Stones with a Human Heart,” was established by Chavi Ehrenfeld, the volunteer affiliate manager of Navah, a nonprofit organization that has provided support to bereaved families for over 20 years.

Yom HaZikaron, Israel’s Memorial Day for Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terror, is a day of remembrance that unites the entire Jewish community worldwide.

As many bereaved families are unable to visit the graves of their beloved relatives on this day, our project aims to provide a meaningful way for them to honor and remember from afar. Through our initiative, a decorated stone bearing a personalized loving message is placed on the grave of their loved ones by our dedicated volunteers on Memorial Day, even when they cannot be present in person. A photograph of the stone being placed on the grave is then sent to the bereaved families in Israel and around the world.

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

Join Us

Thank you for your willingness to participate in this meaningful and impactful project on behalf of bereaved families in Israel and around the world. Memorial Day for Fallen Israeli soldiers and Victims of Terror will be observed on May 13, 2024. We are in need of many volunteers to join this project in the weeks leading up to Memorial Day and on the day itself.

Volunteers will coordinate activities across Israel, decorate stones according to families’ requests, and place them on the graves of fallen Israeli soldiers and victims of terror in military and civilian cemeteries throughout the country.
