Reform Judaism, fellow Reform communities around the UK, together with the Assembly of Rabbis and Cantors, will join together online to mark the Havdallah – Transition – between Yom Hazikaron, a day we remember the fallen soldiers and terror victims to celebrating Yom Ha’Atzmaut – Israel’s 72nd Independence Day. This painful transition reminds us of the sacrifice so many people made to establish the state of Israel and keep it safe and from this memory we move to celebrating the establishment of the state.

Members: Please see information in this week’s newsletter with details about how to join this event.

7.00 pm – 8.00 pm – Yom HaZikaron and Yom HaAtzmaut Tekes
