Yom Hazikaron and Yom Ha'atzmaut

Check out how you can meaningfully commemorate Yom Hazikaron and Yom Ha'atzmaut with Adath Israel this year. 

On Wednesday April 18, 7:00 pm at Adath Israel
Adath Israel & Chevra Thilim are joining forces to honor Israel’s Fallen heroes with a special memorial Yom Hazikaron Program followed by a Yom Ha’atzmaut Celebration Dinner.                                                                                             

Please RSVP to the shul office by Friday, April 13th. LIMITED SEATING!

This program has been made possible by generous grants from the Jewish Community Federation Endowment Fund and the Sterling Bank & Trust/Seligman Family Foundation. 

In addition, our shul is participating in Yizkereim: Honor Israel’s Fallen, a global project designed to honor the memory of the 23,632 fallen heroes who sacrificed their lives defending and protecting the land of Israel, thereby making its upcoming 70th anniversary a reality.

Olami, in partnership with The Afikim Foundation and Israel’s Ministry of Diaspora Affairs, has created a website where visitors can ‘adopt’ a fallen hero and perform a positive action in his/her memory (chesed, Torah study, tzedaka, or prayer).

Our shul has reserved a block of heroes to honor. Please help keep their memories alive by:

  1. Signing up - Look for the “Sign Up” tap in the top right hand corner.

  2. Going to our group page, reading a short bio of a fallen hero and pledging a meaningful action to honor them.

A virtual candle will be lit on the website for each action pledged. A digital file of all actions will be kept at Har Herzl.
