Yom Haatzmaut!!!!

It is hard to go from such a serious, emotional day to the festivity and celebration of Yom Haatzmaut and so all around Israel on Erev Yom Haatzmaut there are Tekesei Maavar- transition ceremonies to help ease into Yom Haatzmaut. We joined the community of Neve Daniel for their Tekes and enjoyed the Daglanut and fireworks and then headed to Rav Eitan's house for falafel and dancing late into the night.


The next morning we headed out to to Vicky's house for our annual Yom Haatzmaut BBQ!!!! We first stopped at a staged army base to take pictures in tanks, camoflouge our faces etc and then we were off to Neve Aliza. We were greeted by the band and lots of yummy cakes and then danced our hearts out in the streets of Neve Aliza before feasting on some great BBQ food!! Of course Yom Haatzmaut in Midreshet would not be complete without a good game of baseball and hearing Vicky speak about how she started her Yishuv. We left feeling inspired that we too can make a difference if we put our minds to it, not to mention charlie horse from all our dancing and baseball! It was a day we will never forget!!!
