Here are five activities to help young children connect with Israel -- on Yom HaAtzmaut and all year long.
Wheat, barley, grape, fig, pomegranate, olive, and date. Collectively they are known as the sheva minim, the seven species of sacred fruits and grains grown in the Land of Israel.
Since the establishment of the State of Israel, four new holidays have been added to the Jewish calendar - Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day), Yom HaZikaron (Memorial Day), Yom HaAatzmaut (Independence Day), and Yom Yerushalayim (Jerusalem Day). In Israel, these holidays are observed as national holidays.
Too cold to plant a tree outside? This tree can be the centerpiece at your Tu BiShvat party. Most materials can be found at your local craft shop (and, of course, a quick stop at your local candy store!)
Celebrate Yom HaAtzmaut with these Israel-inspired pinwheels, a fun craft that can be adapted for all ages.
Yom HaAtzmaut (Israeli Independence Day) arrives just as the weather turns warm. Celebrate with patriotic planters.
