Maccabi World Union unveiled a memorial to the 1,200 victims of the Oct. 7 Hamas massacre at the Kfar Maccabiah hotel and sports club complex in Ramat Gan on Wednesday.

Since the onset of Israel’s war against Hamas, MWU has been active in helping tens of thousands of residents from the south who evacuated their towns and kibbutzim on the border with Gaza.

MWU turned Kfar Maccabiah into a small village to accommodate evacuees from Sderot, a city on the Gaza border, and the surrounding area. MWU has ensured that evacuees have housing, schooling for children, playgrounds and a host of other amenities including counseling and help for victims of trauma and PTSD.

Maccabi World Union unveiled the memorial to the 1,200 men, women and children whom Gaza terrorists brutally murdered on Oct. 7. The event was closed to the public and attended by President Isaac Herzog along with Amir Peled, chairman, and Michael Segal, president, of MWU. The memorial is now open to the public for viewing.
