The ceremony was attended by former Kadima Chairwoman Tzipi Livni, Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai, MK Nitzan Horowitz (Meretz), and social activist Daphni Leef.

 

During the ceremony, Livni noted that the memorial "wasn't only meant for the victims, but also as a reminder to Israeli society… that people have the right to live in dignity in the state of Israel."

 

"Equality and justice do not solely belong to the political Left," Livni added, "These words should belong to all," she said, noting that equality was not only a democratic value, but also a Jewish one.
