The time between Yom HaZikaron (Day of Remembrance) and Yom Ha’atzmaut (Independence Day) is a time of transition for Israeli Jews: from mourning to joy, from sadness to celebration. Maital Friedman, a Vice President at the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America and Rabbi Michelle Dardashti of Kane Street Synagogue–together with Rabbis Carie Carter, Sam Levine, Serge Lippe, Amichai Lau Lavie & Brooklyn JAFI Shaliach, Elad Bar Ilan –will reflect on this transitional moment on the calendar and what it means for us as North American Jews.
Together, we will consider our personal and communal connections to Israel as the country turns 75 and during this particularly tumultuous and challenging moment in Israel’s history. Join in this evening of transition as we remember, reflect and rejoice.
The evening will include study, ceremony, and celebration. We’ll usher in Yom Ha’atzmaut together with festive music and kibud (Israeli nosh!)
