Yom Haatzmaut

The transition from the sadness of Yom Hazikaron to the joy of Yom Ha'atzmaut was felt by all on our trip to Chashmonaim, a yishuv located near Modiin. We celebrated with the members of the Yishuv through songs, special "daglanut" (flag dances) a street fair, dancing and fireworks. We were hosted by Mrs. Chana Spiegleman and her family for dinner and were inspired by her personal – and emotional - reflections on her own aliyah journey. Yom Ha'atzmaut is a celebration of the modern state of Israel and in order to enhance our appreciation of our land, it is customary to take "tiyulim" (trips) to places all over the country. Our girls really enjoyed spending the "chag" with their kids at Beit Hayeled and felt the festive atmosphere as they went out to Park Gilo on Yom Ha'atzmaut day for games, sports, activities and the traditional BBQ – Israeli style!
