I am delighted that EB is taking a lead and participating in the wide array of community programming as Yom Hazikaron and Yom Ha'atzmaut approach. Programming kicks off on Shabbat after a NYHS-sponsored Kiddush @ Ezra Bessaroth on Shabbat day, May 3rd.  

Following Musaf, NYHS Head of School Rabbi Bernie Fox will be delivering a class for a review and discussion of Rabbi Soleveitchik's seminal essay, The Voice of My Beloved Calls. In the course of his discussion, Rabbi Fox will deal with questions like: "What is the impact and  meaning of the State of Israel? How have Diaspora communities been affected by the creation of the State of Israel? How might Jewish life been different had history taken an alternative course?"

Shabbat Afternoon @ 6:20 pm, I will lead a session on the question: "Was the Jewish State Born in Sin?" We will be looking at Torah sources that have been used to advance an anti-Zionist perspective and offer possible responses to those claims....

Women are invited to join the Midrasha - Seattle Torah Institute for Women for a special class on "The daughters of Tzelafchad & the Love of Eretz Yisrael, Sunday, May 4th at 10am. Followed at 11am by a class on the topic: "Is there a Halachic Obligation to make Aliyah?". To be held at the home of Rachel Sassoon 5505 S. Upland Road in Seward Park.  

The next day, at Minyan Ohr Chadash - Monday May 5th, there’s a Yom HaZikaron memorial for Israel’s fallen soldiers followed by a festive Arvit service for Yom HaAzmaut. Mincha promptly @ 7:30 pm ~ The program begins @ 7:45 pm  

On Tuesday May 6th EB will be joining the Shaharit @ SBH at 6:50am. This will be followed by Hallel for Yom HaAzmaut and light breakfast. 


Then on Tuesday evening, join us for a community celebration of the miracle that is Israel. The festivities commence on Tuesday, May 6th at 5:30 pm with the Seattle premiere of "The Miracle of Israel", an exciting film that explores the amazing facts and incredible events that led to the rebirth of the Jewish state.
