What is the Magen Israel Award?
Since September 2015 Israel has been plagued with a wave of violent Palestinian terror attacks which has seen dozens of Israelis killed and hundreds injured. Needless to say, this has been a very difficult year for the Nation of Israel and a very busy time for Shurat HaDin.
However, in the midst of all the pain, death, and terror there are numerous stories of ordinary people stepping up and making extraordinary and heroic sacrifices for their fellow countrymen.
We at Shurat HaDin see it as our duty to ensure that the names of these everyday heroes are recognized and that their stories are told.
It is for this reason that we are pleased to present our Magen Yisrael award, which commends the brave individuals who made selfless sacrifices in the face of terror.
