Today is Yom Hazikaron, the Israeli holiday commemorating the soldiers who have fallen defending the state of Israel, and it will be followed by the holiday of Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israeli Independence Day. While barbecuing is an important part of Yom Ha’atzmaut, there is much more to these holidays and they hold a special place in the heart of Israelis. Below are a few links to educational resources you may want to use while working with your students.
