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.


  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?
