(L-R) Jewish National Fund (JNF) President’s Society members Linda Kaplan and Jeffrey Kraines at a dedication ceremony in memory of Jeffrey’s father, Technical Sergeant Sidney Kraines, at Ammunition Hill in Jerusalem.


Ammunition Hill is the site of the pivotal 1967 battle that made possible the reunification of Jerusalem. JNF has erected a Wall of Honor at Ammunition Hill as a tribute to the heroism and courage of Jewish soldiers who, throughout history, have fought in defense of their countries far beyond their proportions to the general population. Individual plaques can be purchased to honor Jewish soldiers who served or serve in the military of any country. Proceeds go to developing and renovating the museum and battlegrounds, creating a computerized datacenter, library, archive, exhibition hall, and center for assemblies and conferences.
