When you think of “Israel”, ask yourself “how is my connection with the State of Israel (Medinat Yisrael) a part of my identity?
What is your earliest memory of the state of Israel – the UN vote to establish a Jewish state, Ben Gurion announcing Israel’s independence, the six-day war, the peace treaty with Egypt? What makes you proud about the state of Israel? What Israeli food, music, movies and culture do you like most. We are so blessed to live in a time when a Jewish state exists. So many Jews over our three millennium have not lived during the time of a Jewish state. How does that shape your personal story?
