On Wednesday, May 11, 2016, the Beth El Synagogue of East Windsor Israel Affairs Committee presents ‘A Journey Through Time: Highlighting a local contribution to fulfilling the Zionist dream’. The evening will commemorate Israel Memorial Day and celebrate Israel Independence Day.
Take a journey back in time to pre-1948 and learn about the Hechalutz Farm in Hightstown, NJ. This farm trained young Zionists in the farming industry prior to them going to Israel and establishing several Kibbutzim. There will be a moment of remembrance for the fallen soldiers of Israel’s wars. This will be followed by the broadcast of the UN vote to establish Israel’s independence.
There will be two showings of this event. The first showing is from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. The second showing is from 7:00pm to 8:00pm.
A light falafel dinner and dessert will be served for $7 per person from 6:30pm to 7:00pm.
RSVP is required for the dinner.
