At the ceremony, the participants will

Empty chairs in the hall display photos of those abducted, missing, murdered, and fallen among IDF soldiers and civilians. This initiative is led by Daniel Zilber, the chairman of the Student Union at Tel Aviv University, in cooperation with the university.
The exhibit is also part of a broad initiative led by Shaked Benafshi, initiator of the students' public diplomacy war room UNITED AGAINST TERRORISM, which includes dozens of support rallies and exhibits at approximately 20 leading universities in the US and Europe, to assist Israel's public diplomacy efforts and expose the horrors of the Hamas terror attack. Participating campuses include Harvard, Yale, NYU, MIT, University of Michigan, Columbia, and many others.
