WHY: The event falls near the holiday of Yom HaAtzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day, which will be celebrated on the evening of April 25 through April 26 this year. It follows soon after Yom HaShoah, during which we remember the six million victims of the Holocaust and honor the survivors, and Yom HaZikaron, during which we honor the fallen soldiers and victims of terror who have given their lives in defense of the State of Israel. The event at Summit Park will commemorate the seventy fifth anniversary of the reading of the Declaration of Independence in Israel and its establishment as a modern state.
