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.
