YAMIM 2019: Joined Together By a Common Thread

Yom HaShoah, Yom HaZikaron and Yom HaAtzmaut, together called Yamim or “days,” reflect the great journey of the Jewish people — from slavery to freedom, from victimization to sovereignty. Yamim are a deep expression of our people’s shared destiny and mutual responsibility; it is the thread that joins us together.
