On September 11, 2014, members of our CCAP group Students Supporting Israel at the University of Minnesota (SSIM) orchestrated their second annual memorial service and event to remember and honor America’s fallen from the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.
The event was decorated with American flags spread out across Northrop Plaza in the shape of 9/11. The service was designed to put politics aside in order to bring people of all different faiths, political orientations, and beliefs together to stand up against religious extremism and highlight the terrorism perpetuated by radical Islamists in the Middle East.
SSIM requested that their peers “pay tribute to those that lost their lives on that tragic day as well as to write thank you cards to U.S Army soldiers currently risking their lives for our freedom.”
The event proved to be a success with over 300 attendees that joined together for a common cause that reflects the commonalities between American and Israeli values.
