Yom Ha'atzmaut

We celebrate Yom Ha-Atsmaut, Israel Independence Day, with the recitation of the full Hallel—with a blessing--in our morning services. For many years, Shearith Israel has sponsored celebratory events—often together with other synagogues and organizations—to rejoice together as a community on the re-establishment of Jewish sovereignty over the Land of Israel after nearly 2000 years of exile.
