Lunch and Learn: How Israel Commemorates the Fallen 🙋
For Americans, Memorial Day likely conjures images of parades, fireworks, sales and barbecues. But when the sirens sound for Israel’s Yom Hazikaron, the entire country literally stands still. It’s a metaphorical yahrzeit that every single person commemorates together, all at once. And then in a beautiful transition, the solemn day of grieving flows right into Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day. Join Rabbi Tracy Kaplowitz as we mark this solemn holiday by listening to some of the moving programs broadcast on Israeli radio and television (no Hebrew knowledge required). Israeli snacks will be provided!Category: Adults, Adult Education, Israel Interest
