Biden embraced the bear hug approach to Israel immediately after Oct. 7 because he believed it was the most effective way to have influence on Israel as it carried out its military assault on Hamas.

On which the National Day of Remembrance for the Simchat Torah Massacre will be celebrated?

The Government of Israel has unanimously approved that every year in Tishrei, a national day of remembrance will be observed to commemorate the disaster that befell the State of Israel on October 7 and the Iron Swords War.

The Government of Israel has unanimously approved that every year on the 24th of Tishrei, a national day of remembrance will be observed to commemorate the disaster that befell the State of Israel on October 7 and the Iron Swords War. And also that in the first year a one-time ceremony will also be held on the foreign date - October 7.

Remembrance Day will be celebrated every year in Tishrei in two state ceremonies: at 11:00 a.m. a ceremony in memory of the martyrs who fell in the war, and at 1:00 p.m. a ceremony in memory of the civilians murdered by hostilities.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, in coordination with the Minister of Transportation and Road Safety, who is in charge of events for the 76th anniversary of the State of Israel, Brigadier General Miri Regev, the Ministry of Defense and the State Ceremonies and Events in the Prime Minister's Office set the annual state commemoration events to commemorate the Iron Swords War.

This year, due to the fact that the 24th of Tishrei falls on a Sabbath, the ceremonies will take place in the 24th of Tishrei on Sunday, and so it will be held every year when the date of the 24th of Tishrei falls on a Sabbath.

Also, beyond the National Day of Remembrance that will be held regularly every year on the Hebrew date, in the first year we will mark a one-time, state ceremony on October 7, 2024, the foreign date of the brutal terrorist attack, which was enshrined in the public consciousness in Israel and around the world. Every year after that, the 24th day of Tishrei will be observed as a national day of remembrance in the State of Israel to commemorate the disaster of October 7, 2023.

Pity.
Setting the original remembrance day in ניסן was mistake enough. No need to double down

End of tishrei isn't the same as Nissan. Also, in this situation there is more significance to the date.

Obviously. While their setting of Holocaust rememberance day is related to the Zionist ideal of כוחי ועוצם ידי and was therefore set for the anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto revolt while officially commemorating all who perished throughout the war, in this case it is a commemoration of what happens to be a common Yahrzeit (on the following day to allow for civil ceremonies without חילול שבת ויו"ט).

One thing that flew under the radar for me, was that a Kevutza in BMG was tasked by the Roshei Yeshivas with making asifas for communities to be mischazek and daven for the geula and I must give the yungerleit full credit. I just attended one for the Chassidish South neighborhood of Lakewood and I was very impressed. Mi K'Amcha Yisroel. If someone else attended and would like to describe the "Avira", it would be appreciated. It is not announced or advertised beyond the immediate neighborhood that the individual asifa is designed for.

I guess we can learn more from Avichai Edrei (IDF Arabic spokesman)

Quote
The IDF and the Shin Bet are working inside the Al-Shifa Medical Complex to thwart terrorist activities

In the meantime, both the IDF and the Public Security Service are working carefully to thwart terrorist activities and to arrest saboteurs in the Al-Shifa Medical Complex area, due to the receipt of intelligence information indicating the presence of saboteurs inside the hospital and the use of the complex’s infrastructure to carry out terrorist activities.

During the operation and during the encirclement operation, IDF forces were exposed to fire by saboteurs from inside the Al-Shifa Medical Complex, where the forces responded with fire and wounded the saboteurs. Our forces continue their work inside the hospital area.

Recording of call from IDF liaison to Head of Gaza Health Ministry. Promising aid, while asking to cease all terror operations out of hospitals.
