“This metal remnant was taken from the remains of the Twin Towers, that imploded on 

September 11th disaster. It was sent over to Israel by the City of New York to be 

incorporated in this memorial. This metal piece, like the entire monument, is a 

manifestation of the special relationship between New York and Jerusalem.”
