ZFA NEWSLETTER MAY 16 2014
We hope you were able to take part in the events for Yom Hazikaron and Yom Ha’atzmaut.
We are incredibly proud that across Australia, the respective Zionist Councils presented activities and programs to enable the communities to commemorate and celebrate.
This month we also celebrate Yom Yerushalayim on the 28th May. It is a national Chag in Israel that marks the reunification of Jerusalem. It was declared a minor religious holiday and is commemorated by state ceremonies, memorial services for those who died in the battle for Jerusalem, parades through downtown Jerusalem, singing, dancing, educational discussions for school aged students to learn about the significance of Jerusalem both in Israel and by Jewish schools around the world.
We are also starting to gear up for the ZFA Biennial Jewish Educators Conference on 17 – 18 August at Mt Scopus Memorial College. We have an incredible line-up of guests already confirmed with the Israeli Minister of Education Shai Piron coming out especially for the event. We will keep you posted on all the updates – check out information on the speakers on our website. REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN – click here to book now!
We wish you all Shabbat Shalom
