Speaking with us from Tel Aviv, Rabbi Leor Sinai, Senior Director of Israel Education for RootOne, discusses the somber national mood on Yom HaZikaron, the quick transition to the euphoria of Yom HaAtzma'aut, and how educators can transmit the significance of these days to learners, wherever they are in the world.
