Jewish National Fund-USA (JNF-USA), the US Embassy in Israel and Keren Kayemet LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF) held their annual memorial ceremony on Sunday in Jerusalem to honor the victims that died 20 years ago in the 9/11 attacks. 
The 9/11 Living Memorial Monument is the only monument outside the United States that lists the names of all the victims of the attacks in New York, Washington DC and Pennsylvania in 2001.
Many New Yorkers who were at the scene when the tragedy occurred have described their trauma from the event. 

The Jewish National Fund says the monument “perfectly characterizes the strong, enduring Israeli-American relationship based on shared democratic principles, peace, and cooperation in the fight against terror.”
Among the attendees at the ceremony were former prime minister Ehud Olmert and Jerusalem Deputy Mayor Elisha Peleg, as well as representatives from Nefesh B’Nefesh, the Knesset and the Foreign Ministry.

Fewer than 100 people participated in the ceremony because of COVID regulations.  
Last week, many of those working at The Jerusalem Post shared their experiences when the tragedy occurred.
