Israeli National Holydays: Jewish Space and Time in Israel
Hosted By: Central Synagogue
This two-part series will explore how Israel created sacred space and time in the early years of independence.
Today’s session will explore Mt.Herzl/The Mountain of Memory in Jerusalem, the place of national commemoration of the Shoah, the great Zionist leaders, and the heavy price of Jewish sovereignty. The next session on Thursday April 15 will look at the evolution of three national Holydays – Yom HaShoah, Yom HaZikharon, and Yom Ha’atzmaut. The sacred space of Mt. Herzl and the sacred ten-day period are cornerstones to understanding the expression of Jewish sovereignty in Israel.
The fee covers both sessions.
