Almost every city in Israel has a public building called Yad Labanim, a memorial center for its fallen soldiers. In the central city of Petah Tikva, the Yad Labanim building is adorned by a series of mosaics created by prominent mosaic artist Mordechai Gumpel that draw on biblical scenes and stories. The mosaic shown here includes a verse from King David’s lament after the death of Saul and Jonathan, often recited at Memorial Day ceremonies.
