Memorial Day in Israel

It was the late Chief Rabbi Shlomo Goren who made the decision to institute Israel's Memorial Day immediately before Independence Day. He explained Memorial Day's significance as follows:
"We view the warriors who fall in battle as those who sprout forth life. The life of a nation grew out of this blood... This day must be more than mourning: We must remember, we must grieve, but it must be a day of ... majesty and vision."
amein amein amein selah vaed.

historically - daled iyar was the day that kfar etzion fell and yom hazikaron was originally set to commemorate those that fell there. Sort of like Memorial day in the us commemorates the fallen at gettysburg.
