The 9/11 Living Memorial, located in the Arazim Valley commemorates the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The monument, which was dedicated by Jewish National Fund (JNF) in November 2009, is one of the first major international memorials to the victims of the attacks and the only site outside of New York that lists the names of the nearly 3,000 men, women, and children who perished.
Designed by award-winning Israeli artist Eliezer Weishoff, the 30-foot high bronze sculpture is composed of an American flag transforming into a memorial flame. Amphitheater-style benches along the interior provide visitors with space for viewing and reflection (adapted from www.jnf.org).
Take Route 1 towards Tel Aviv, after about 4 kilometers (3 miles) take the turnoff (to the Right) towards Bet Zayit and Motza. Travel about 500 meters (400 yards). You will come to a T junction, continue straight onto a dirt/unpaved road until it becomes paved. The paved road curves to the Right. Follow signs to the site.
