The Greater Miami Jewish Federation shares a strong bond with the people of Yerucham through Jewish Agency Partnership2Gether - sharing in each others joy and pain. Thus, it was only natural that Miami sent a delegation of 25 adults and 110 teens to Yerucham to take part in the community's Yom Hazikaron events, with delegates staying overnight with Yerucham host families. The group participated in the municipal ceremony on the eve of Yom Hazikaron, then went to hear a Yerucham steering committe member who addressed them on some of Israel's important battles and stories of courageous soldiers who died in battle. The group attended prayer services the following morning and went to Yerucham's military ceremony to pay their respects.
