|September 11, 2001—23 Elul 5761—made us witnesses and mourners. Jewish custom calls for reflection on the anniversary of a death. In that spirit, our Museum honors the yahrzeit—the anniversary—of the losses sustained. The Museum’s proximity to the site of the tragedy, our identity as a downtown cultural institution, and our mission of remembrance compel us to reflect and remember with the community and our neighbors, ten years later.
As we think about those who lost their lives that day, we say to their families: Zai-kher tzaddik livrakha — may the memory of the righteous be for a blessing.
