Jewish Tidewater celebrates Yom Ha’atzmaut all day long

by | Apr 22, 2021 | Featured

The sun was shining and the air crisp, making it a perfect day to hang out of car windows and stand up through sunroofs waving Israeli flags and streamers to celebrate Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s 73rd Independence Day, at the Sandler Family Campus on Sunday, April 18.

Families enjoyed “traveling through Israel” while never leaving their car, getting treats and being treated to Israeli experiences and music throughout the afternoon.

That same evening, cars filled the parking lot for a Drive-In movie. Prior to the start of the film, the primarily adult audience mingled in social-distant fashion, all remarking how good it was to actually see each other. Following the showing of the film, Aulcie, a conversation with the film’s director, Dani Menkin, and Joel Rubin took place.

While all things Israel was the prime common denominator of the day, happy faces were a close second.
