November is a month full of important moments in Israeli history. November 2 we celebrated the 103rd anniversary of the signing of the Balfour Declaration. On November 4, the world mourned the anniversary of the assassination of former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin (z"l).  On November 10, 1975 the United Nations passed the "Zionism equals Racism" resolution.  November 21 is the anniversary of Operation Moses, when thousands of Ethiopian Jews were airlifted to Israel in 1984. The UN Partition Plan, which paved the way for the establishment of the state the following year, was adopted on November 29th, 1947.
