It is a long-standing tradition of the Melbourne Yom Hazikaron commemoration that members of the community who have lost a family member or friend participate by sharing the story of their fallen loved one and lighting a memorial candle. The Yom Hazikaron co-hosting organisations invite members of the community who have a connection to a fallen soldier or a victim of terror to participate in this year’s ceremony by lighting a candle in his or her memory and/or sharing a story, poem or song related to their loved one. The fallen are included in the commemoration program, and those participating receive organised seating in the hall.

The event is scheduled for April 21, 2015 at the Robert Blackwood Hall at Monash University,
