Yom Ha’Atzmaut (Israel’s Independence Day)

Yom Ha’atzmaut – Independence Day – is the national day of Israel, commemorating the Israeli Declaration of Independence in 1948. It is celebrated either on the 5th of Iyar, according to the Hebrew calendar, or on one of the preceding or following days, depending on which day of the week this date falls on. Yom Ha’atzmaut is preceded by Yom Hazikaron, the Israeli Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terrorism Remembrance Day.

On April 19, 2018, International March of the Living will celebrate our 30th Anniversary as we march in Jerusalem from Kikar Safra to the Kotel in honor of all victims of the Holocaust.
