yom ha'zikaron

Wed., April 14 

7 PM

Location: Bailey Park

Yom Hazikaron, the Israeli Memorial Day, is different in its character and mood from the American Memorial Day. For 24 hours (from sunset to sunset) all places of public entertainment (theaters, cinemas, nightclubs, pubs, etc.) are closed. All radio and television stations broadcast programs honoring the lives of fallen soldiers. Memorial Day is also purposely (and symbolically) the day before Independence day, so people never forget to honor those they have lost before they celebrate. For this program, we will be having a candle light memorial at Bailey Park. We will be reading the stories of fallen soldiers and honoring their memories. Questions? Contact Maddi Jackson at
