Celebrate Israel’s Independence Day with the Boulder JCC

girl w Israeli FlagJoin the Boulder JCC, other local Jewish organizations, and your fellow Jewish community members this coming Monday afternoon for Yom Ha’atzmaut!

Monday, May 5, marks Israel’s Independence Day – a day in which we celebrate the Israeli Declaration of Independence of 1948. On that eventful day now 66 years ago, David Ben-Gurion declared “the establishment of a Jewish state in Eretz Israel, to be known as the State of Israel.”

Similar to how America celebrates our Independence Day on the 4th of July with barbeques, drinking, and dancing, Yom Ha’atzmaut is marked with celebrations by Jews around the world! The Boulder JCC is excited to host Boulder’s Yom Ha’atzmaut celebration on Monday afternoon from 4:00 to 5:30 pm with sponsors HW Home, Jewish National Fund, Ron Werner, and Hazon.
