Celebrate Israel's 64th Birthday!

April 27/28 has been designated Reform Israel Shabbat by the URJ, ARZA, HUC, CCAR, ACC, WRJ and MRJ. This is the first time, in recent history, that all the arms of our Reform Movement have worked together to support and celebrate Israel!


To make your celebration of Yom Ha'Atzmaut and Reform Israel Shabbat even richer, ARZA has compiled a number of suggested readings, each written by an Israeli woman.


Women and men together are continuing to build an inclusive, democratic, Jewish Israeli society which we hope will forever live in peace. As we together honor the formation of the State of Israel, let us honor the contributions, and voices, to this ongoing effort.
