Israel's most dramatic two days of the year are Yom HaZikaron, (Memorial Day for Fallen Soldiers), immediately followed by Yom HaAtzma'ut (Independence Day).

We honor our fallen soldiers and civilian victims of terror on Yom HaZikaron, through remembering them and expressing eternal gratitude, and we sanctify their ultimate sacrifice by celebrating on Yom HaAtzma'ut the incredible state of Israel they have bequeathed us.
