Shabbat Message for May 2

May 2, 2014 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit

Dear WP Supporters,

Somber remembrance immediately followed by joyful celebration is how this week will begin in Israel and for all Zionists as Yom HaZikaron and Yom HaAtzmaut are commemorated. Sunday evening’s sunset marks the beginning of Israel’s recognition of her fallen solders and victims of terror and Monday evening starts the celebration of Israel’s Independence. These two days are purposely connected to remind us to always look to the bright future especially after remembering the horrors of our past. On Yom HaZikaron, at 10am in the morning, a 2-minute siren is hear throughout Israel as the whole nation comes to a halt. Cars on the roads and highways stop and everyone stands at attention wherever they are. It is truly a moving site to see and experience. Please join our Detroit commemoration of Yom HaZikaron this Sunday evening (promptly) at 5:30pm at the Berman Center for the Performing Arts which is connected to our JCC in West Bloomfield. There is no charge but they ask that everyone to be seated by 5:15pm. Here are the details: jewishdetroit.org/event/youm-hazikaron-israels-national-memorial-day/ and for some enjoyment about Yom HaAtzmaut, here is a wonderful music video celebrating the HOPE we all have for Israel:
