As we approach Yom HaZikaron – Israel's National Day of Remembrance for Fallen Soldiers and ‎Victims of Hostilities, observed this year on May 13, 2024, we invite you to play a significant and ‎meaningful role in the Navah organization's global social initiative, "Stones with a Human ‎Heart."‎

Navah initiated the “Stones with a Human Heart” project during the Covid-19 pandemic when ‎the customary visits by thousands of Israelis to military cemeteries on Yom HaZikaron were ‎restricted. As part of the project, volunteers place decorated stones with messages of ‎encouragement and empathy on the graves of Israel's martyrs in all military cemeteries across ‎the country on Yom HaZikaron, addressed to the families.
The gesture of the stones and their ‎heartfelt message touch the hearts of the families of the fallen, offering them comfort, ‎warmth, and a profound sense of connection amidst their grief.

 Many schools, youth movements, community centers, day centers for the elderly, and employment rehabilitation programs around the country participate in the preparation and placement of these stones nationwide. ‎

The cost of each stone is $18, which includes a contribution towards the Navah’s ongoing ‎activities, including the “Empty Seat at the Table”- a communal Passover Seder night for ‎widows, ‎orphans ‎and bereaved families; therapeutic group workshops; and individual therapy.‎
If you would like to take part in this meaningful project,by April 18, 2024.

Tragically, we have witnessed an unprecedented expansion of the circle of bereaved families ‎this year, with thousands more joining those who have lost loved ones in wars and terror since the state's establishment. Given the current circumstances, we kindly ask you to consider ‎participating in the project to ensure that each grave will be represented with a stone.‎
