Yom HaAtzmaut (Israeli Independence Day)

Yom HaAtzmaut (Israeli Independence Day) celebrates the independence of the Modern State of Israel. In Israel the day of Yom HaAtzmaut is marked with fireworks, barbeques, and outdoor revelry. For Jewish communities outside of Israel it is a time to gather and celebrate our pride and connection to the Jewish homeland.

Virtual Yom Ha’Atzmaut Celebrations

Yom HaAtzmaut: Moments of Pride Through Israeli Innovation
Wednesday, April 14 • 5:00-6:00 pm
On the eve of Israel’s 73rd independence celebration, our program will open with a virtual tour of the Peres Center for Peace and Innovation and an interview with Chemi Peres, the chairman of the Center’s board and the co-founder and managing general partner of Pitango venture capital fund, which invests widely in the technology field, from IT to medicine.

We’ll also spotlight the country’s undeniable culture of innovation and its ability to overcome obstacles, by visiting three Israeli enterprises and hearing from their founders about how each built the business and what North American Jews can learn from their experiences.

Watch the livestream on the JCCA’s Virtual JCC page.
