Israeli Memorial Day
May 1 is Israeli Memorial Day. “Yom HaZikaron” begins at sundown on Sun., April 30, 2017.
I’d love to visit Israel and see the old city, Jerusalem, the temple mount, Masada and Eilat, a resort town. It’s on my bucket list.
Yom HaAtzma’ut / יום העצמאות
Israeli Independence Day.
Commemorates the declaration of independence of Israel in 1948. Yom HaAtzma’ut begins at sundown on Mon, 01 May 2017.
Different synagogues schedule different events to celebrate these days. My synagogue in Crystal Lake is having Israel Day on Sun. May 1 with Israeli dancing, food, games, and jewelry and handmade items for sale by member vendors.
I’ll be selling Israeli necklaces and keychains along with my regular and Judaica jewelry and kippot.
Happy Independence Day Israel!
