Dear (Contact First Name),
Ba'Eretz Ahavati (In My Beloved Country)
In my beloved country the almond tree blossoms
In my beloved country a guest is awaited
Seven maids, seven mothers, seven brides at the gate.
In my beloved country a flag on the steeple
To my beloved country a pilgrim shall arrive
In a good time, a blessed time which eases all sorrow.
But who has eyes of an eagle to see him, and who has a wise heart to recognize him?
Who will not be mistaken, who will not err
Who would open the door for him?
We hope that this issue of Hakesher, will "open doors" for you to commemorate and celebrate "our beloved country" on Yom Hazikaron (Israel's Memorial Day for Fallen Soldiers) and Yom Ha'azmaut (Israel's Independence Day). Last year, we distributed a full list of program resources for both Yom Hazikaron and Ha'atzmaut. This newsletter will only feature three new additions for 2012, divided into three different categories: Hazikaron, Ha'atzmaut and Yom Yerushalayim. For the 2011 list of Yom Hazikaron and Ha'atzmaut, click on the link on the side bar.
