Israel Photo of the Day: Yom HaZikaron
Tonight we begin to commemorate Yom HaZikaron, Remembrance Day for Fallen Israeli Soldiers and Victims of Terror. This sticker is traditionally handed out at Yom HaZikaron ceremonies in Israel, and depicts the Dam HaMakabim(“Blood of the Maccabees” Flower), found throughout Israel. This flower has come to be the symbol for Yom HaZikaron, as it represents the strength and heroism of the Maccabean warriors (from the story of Chanukah). We wish you a meaningful commemoration of those we have lost and those who have sacrificed for Israel and the Jewish people.
Israel Photo of the Day - Tekes
Garin Tzabar, Tzofim’s army program for Diaspora Jews who want to serve in the Israeli army, while maintaining and growing a network and family of like-minded peers. This photograph captures Garin Tzabar participants happily celebrating a step forward in their progress; at a tekes, or ceremony, as part of their army service. On breaks from their service, Garin Tzabar participants return home to their host Kibbutz to relax and spend time with their Garin; their community; their friends; their family.
