Tomorrow is Yom HaAtzmauut (Israeli Independence Day) and in the spirit of solidarity with Jews all over the world, we honor and celebrate the centrality of the Jewish State in the life-blood of Jewish history, heritage, culture and spiritual sustenance. As a modern political entity, Israel is only 74 years old, but in this short period of time Israel has become one of the most successful centers for technology, industry, medicine, agriculture and science in the entire world.
Indeed, we can take great pride in the fact that Israel has established herself as one of the most democratic, forward-thinking nations in the world, and we will do so this week at Shabbat services.
Please join us to celebrate Israel’s 74th at HCRJ with a very special Shabbat service on Friday night at 6:30pm featuring music, meditations and an Israeli oneg. We will also be honoring our teachers and bidding farewell to our graduating seniors.
Happy Yom HaAtzmauut!
