Israel's Yom Ha'Zikaron & Yom Ha'atzmaut
The Masa Yom HaZikaron Virtual Memorial Ceremony
On April 27th, at 7:50 pm Israel time, the eve of Yom HaZikaron, we will commemorate IDF soldiers and victims of terror at the largest virtual ceremony for the Jewish world. For Israelis, this day is one of the most important of the year as we recognize those who sacrificed their lives for our great country.
At Masa, we see it as our opportunity and responsibility to share the centrality of this day with our thousands of fellows.
Our English speaking ceremony is a chance for thousands of Masa fellows and Jews around the world to participate in this event from a personal, communal, and national perspective.
