Yom HaZikaron is Israel's Memorial Day for fallen soldiers and others who have died in service to the State. Yom HaAtzma'ut is Israel's Independence Day. The two are observed together, with Yom HaAtzma'ut following directly on the close of Yom HaZikaron.

This year, Yom HaZikaron falls on Tuesday night the 17th of April and Wednesday the 18th. Yom HaAtzma'ut is on Wednesday night the 18th and Thursday the 19th.

We will be joining with Edgware Masorti Synagogue (EMS) to mark these important days. 

Date and time: Wednesday April 18th, 7pm

Venue: EMS (Stream Lane, Edgware HA8 7YA)




  • Rabbi Mijael of EMS will lead a ceremony marking the transformation from commemoration of Yom HaZikaron to celebration of Yom HaAtzma'ut. As part of the ceremony, Chazan Jacky of Kol Nefesh will lead Hallel.

  • Supper will begin around 8:30pm (meaty with plenty of vegetarian options). At this time, the Netanya School for Performing Arts will entertain us with music and dance.

Cost: 7 pounds per person to be paid in advance. An appeal for Myisrael will be made on the night.
