Israel Independence Day/ Yom Haatzmaut

On the eve of Yom Haatzmaut we gathered in the Dining Room at Talpiot for an Israeli style dinner, followed by the traditional lighting of the torches and flag march.

Every family chose two children to light the ceremonial  torches in honor of the soldiers in the Israeli Defense Forces, immigrants that came on  Aliyah to Israel, and for the children and educators of Israel. The older children entertained us with an extraordinary traditional march of flags.   תמונה1
