JNF, which in 2009 constructed the 9/11 Living Memorial in the foothills of Jerusalem, will join in the events as an expression of “gratitude,” the organization said on Tuesday.

“We are very pleased to recognize our brave first responders for their contributions and sacrifices to our nation and to our local communities, and to share our mutual respect while we honor those who fell during the attacks,” said Edward Blank, a member of JNF’s board of directors, who donated the Jerusalem memorial.

JNF will host public tributes to first-responders in Baltimore; Beverly Hills, Calif.; Long Island, NY; Los Angeles; Miami; and Westchester, NY.

Hundreds of Jewish students, lay leaders, rabbis and Jewish community members will participate in the events.
