Yom Hazikaron and Yom Ha'atzmaut

On Yom Hazikaron, we remember Israel's fallen soldiers and victims of terror. This day of national mourning is immediately followed by Yom Ha'atzmaut, which highlights the exhilaration of having a state and a home. This 48-hour experience is unique in its highs and lows, and together, represents the realities of Israel today.
