Remembering and Celebrating
On Yom HaZikaron and Yom Ha'atzmaut we remember our fallen soldiers and celebrate the State of Israel, respectively.
On Monday May 5, the 5th of Iyar, Yom HaZikaron, we commemorate the 23,169 soldiers of Israel who have given their lives so we can have a Jewish homeland. And on Tuesday May 6, the 6th of Iyar, Yom Ha'atzmaut, we celebrate 66 years of the State of Israel.
Nefesh B'Nefesh summed up our thoughts in this moving video.
Am Yisrael Chai!
