The 911 Memorial Jerusalem, Completed in 2009 for $2 million, it sits on 5 acres of hillside, 20 miles from the
center of Jerusalem. The memorial is a 30-foot, bronze American flag. It forms the shape of a flame to
commemorate the flames of the Twin Towers. The base of the monument is made of melted steel from the
wreckage of the World Trade Center. And includes this engraving in both Hebrew and English. This metal
remnant was taken from the remains of the Twin Towers that imploded on September 11th, 2001. It was sent
over to Israel by the City of New York to be incorporated in this memorial. This metal piece, just like the entire
monument, is a manifestation of the special relationship between New York and Jerusalem. Surrounding the
monument are plaques with the names of the victims of 9/11. It is the only memorial outside the U.S. that
includes the names of all who perished in the terrorist attacks. Including five Israeli citizens. The site solemnly
overlooks Jerusalem’s largest cemetery, Har HaMenuchot. The monument is often used for commemoration
and memorial services. A powerful memorial from a powerful ally.
