In Israel, Yom HaZikaron (Day of Remembrance) is a sacred day. The names of Israel’s fallen soldiers are aired on TV for 24 hours in what seems to be an endless list that grows every year. When the siren goes off for two long minutes the whole country stands still, paying respect to those who paid the highest price for its existence. It is a day of mourning and awe, a day like no other.
This coming Sunday (April 18th), we will be part of the millions in Israel and around the world who will come together to commemorate the brave men and women to whom we owe so much. Please join the Israel Program Center of the Minneapolis Jewish Federation at the Sabes JCC at 7:00 pm . Click here for more information on the program.
