Three candle lightings are set to take place, honouring Chaim Bar Natan, who fell in Lebanon in 1992, Hadar Cohen who was a victim of terror in 2016 and the first female to be honoured by the annual event, and David Vider, a medic who fell in 1979, and who will be honoured through personal testimony by surviving family members living in Australia.

The night will also be marked by musical performances from Jewish Day Schools and community choirs, Amir Paise, Yuval Ashkar, Anita Lester and more. Antony Gafin from ZDVO and Bat Hen Zeev from Wizo will share the duties as masters of ceremonies in both English and Hebrew. Erev Shirei Zikaron will follow the ceremony, performed by Shani Weiss.
