You may have never celebrated Israeli holidays before, but after going to Israel they take on a whole new meaning. What does Yom Hazikaron – Israeli Memorial Day – mean to you after having met so many soldiers on your trip? What about Yom Haatzmaut – Israeli independence Day – after having visited Independence Hall in Tel Aviv? How about Yom Yerushalayim – the day Jerusalem was liberated from the Jordanians in 1967 – after having spent time at the Western Wall? You may want to highlight the dates on your calendar so that you can join Israel in commemorating these monumental days.

Instructions:


  1. Choose one of the three crucial moments listed above.

  2. In a video, text, or photo tell us:

    • What does that moment in Israeli history mean to you?

    • How have you commemorated that moment in history?
