Rethinking How We Commemorate
Yom Ha’Zikaron and Yom Ha’Atzmaut

In a post-October 7th world, in an environment of record levels of antisemitism and anti-Zionism, Yom Ha’Zikaron and Yom Ha’Atzmaut take on a new depth.

The choices we make, the stories we tell, the rituals we establish, and the calls to action we make, will shape how we relate to Jewish Peoplehood and the State of Israel – for years to come.

Join M² and other educational leaders in learning new educational frameworks, and in designing and planning high-quality, meaningful, and engaging programs for your students and communities.
