9/11 Memorial…Jerusalem, Israel?

by Reb Akiva @ Mystical Paths

In a small clearing in the Jerusalem forest sits a piece of the Twin Towers.  It’s hard to spot and a long drive down a winding road with a hidden entrance, but nestled in that small clearing is a large memorial.

Jerusalem is filled with American ex-pat Jews, and apparently some felt building a tribute to the heroes and martyrs of September 11, 2001 – the day when 2 commercial airlines were flown into the Twin Tower skyscrapers of Manhattan, New York, USA, by religious Muslim terrorists brutally murdering 3,000 people – was appropriate and paid for privately.  (Why do I add that long description?  Because for my youngest children, 9/11 is an event of the history books.)

I present a visit to the Jerusalem, Israel Living 9/11 Memorial…

  1. Imploded??
    It seems to be centered in a circle of some sort. Could that be like a sundial? Or is it like the monument in Penna. that mimics "official circle-breaking, crescent-creating theme of the 911 memorial design in Shanksville, Pennslyvania"?

    Just some thoughts.

  4. Elie, here's the Google maps coordinates - 31.806613,35.178866

    The entrance road is by Tzomet Golda Meir, though you can only access the road coming from Ramot.
