Honoring Israel's 70th Birthday
We are delighted to announce that Greenburgh Hebrew Center is celebrating Israel’s 70th birthday at our Journal Dinner on Sunday, June 24, 2018.
The establishment of the Jewish state Israel in 1948 was the fulfillment of the vision of a home and a refuge haven for Jews the world over. The now widely recognized blue-and-white flag with the Star of David in its center could only be waved on the land to which the Jewish people had been intimately linked since the time of our Forefather Abraham. It truly boggles one’s mind that this took place just three years after the end of the Holocaust — and with the support of a decisive majority of the members United Nations at the time - 33 in favor, 13 opposed, with ten abstentions.
Miri Regev, Israel’s Culture and Sport Minister, has said “Israeli society is creative, looks to the future, thinks outside the box, and is a trailblazer in research, medicine and agriculture, thereby providing a vital contribution to all of humanity.”
We hope you will join us in celebrating this momentous occasion.
