2021 Collection: Israel's National Holidays

Curated Series
The Jewish Education Project
Israel Celebration

The three Israel national holidays that fall on the Jewish calendar between Pesach and Shavuot - Yom HaZikaron, Yom HaAtzma’ut and Yom Yerushalayim - are especially unique. These days of commemoration and celebration are all contemporary; they were developed less than 100 years ago, in stark contrast to all other Jewish holidays originating in antiquity. They also reflect the intense highs and lows of the modern Jewish People’s experience. This resonates particularly clear this year as we’ve become exceptionally adept at balancing highs and lows, managing to celebrate and rejoice amidst loss. We have developed and collected resources which we are excited to share with you, a representation of wonderful, engaging and meaningful opportunities to observe and celebrate the miraculous modern State of Israel.
