Construction on the monument is expected to begin sometime in the next few months and should be completed by Memorial Day 2013. Defense Minister Ehud Barak first spoke of the project last April. It is now in the final stages of planning.

 

Aryeh Mualem, head of the Defense Ministry's unit for commemorating soldiers, said that each name of a fallen soldier or terror victim will appear on a brick with the person's time of death and a candle, which will light up on his commemoration date. In addition, a memorial service will be held by a military cantor every morning for the soldiers who died that day.

 

Mualem claimed the national monument will finally unify the memory of those who had fallen, since some of them are not recognized in different monuments and sites across Israel. The monument will also provide an solution for many bereaved parents who fear no one will be there to hold memorial services for their loved ones after they die.
