This evening marks the beginning of Yom HaZikaron, a day dedicated to those who have fallen in battle whilst defending the state of Israel; as well as to those whose lives have been taken in terrorist attacks. This national day of mourning is followed thereafter by Yom HaAtzmaut – Israel’s Independence Day. The contiguity of these two days carries special significance.
Join us this evening and tomorrow (May 1-2, 2017), as we say the prayer of Yizkor for those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.
