Yom Hazikaron in Tel Aviv

To start off the day of remembrance we went to a local school for a Yom Hazikaron tekes. At the tekes we heard songs and stories commemorating those who had passed while fighting for Israel. After an emotional ceremony we went to Shuk haCarmel for pizur lunch and free time. The Shuk had an abundance of  scrumptious food and delectable treats. 

After our time at the Shuk, we went back to the hotel for some free time and another scrumdiddlyumptious dinner. After a day of mourning, it was time to party! At sundown Yom Hazikaron ended and it was the start of Israel’s day of independence, Yom Haatzmaut! We drove a couple minutes to Herzliya and split up into groups to go to the festival. There was a concert with bands, singers, dancers, and even acrobatic artists! Each group had lots of fun spraying each other with shaving cream and Silly String. After a long day we traveled back to our hotel and went to sleep.
