Yom Ha'atzmaut

We have been really building up Yom Ha'atzmaut this year.  I am not sure why more this year than others except Froggy is more interested.  
All week we have been reading Israel books.  Froggy insisted on It's Israel's Birthday.  It is really too baby a book for her, but she still loves it.  She read it to me at least a dozen times this week.  We read And Shira Imagined which is not specifically a Yom Ha'atzmaut book but the reader travels with Shira as she tours Israel both ancient and modern. 
 Today we had mini birhtday party for Israel consisting of an Israeli lunch of Falafel, Israeli Salad, and hummus with Birthday cupcakes for dessert.  We sang Yom Huledet as well as Hatikvah.  We watched several YouTube videos, including this one which really shows the transition we are emphasizing from Yom HaShoah to Yom Ha'atzmaut

 Froggy made a cute Israeli flag and we both made pinwheels.  The schoolroom is covered in glitter.


  1. What a wonderful post! Thank you for linking up! I really enjoy reading these posts about Jewish holidays.

  2. I love the flag! The book looks great, too.
