Israel’s 68th Day of Independence is today, May 12, 2016. Even though Yom HaAtzma’ut will be over tonight at sundown, we’ll be celebrating on Sunday morning at religious school, 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., May 15th.
Nancy Marin will involve our students in Israeli dancing. Jessica Yarman will conclude her year-long Shabbat Rishona morning “Passport to Israel” learning program and Stacey Gay, likewise, with “Let’s Discover Israel”.
Parents are welcome to join us. Our seventh graders – now deep into B’nai Mitzvah season – are no longer officially in school on Sunday mornings, but they are welcome to join us.
In addition, why not enjoy all or parts of the video below. Even if your Hebrew is limited to non-existent, this just-uploaded, live-streaming video of the President of Israel’s nationally broadcast ceremony celebrating Israel’s 68th Independence Day will give you a flavor of Israeli national life. Towards the end, of course, will be the singing of the Israeli national anthem – HaTikvah – The Hope.
Yom HaAtzma’ut Sameach / Happy Independence Day / חג העצמאות שמח
