To Be Announced Closer to Date


The State of lsrael’s national independence day, Yom Ha’atzmaut, is a truly momentous day. It is widely observed and celebrated in Jewish communities around the globe and of course in Israel itself.
For decades, the Mizrachi Canada Yom HaZikaron / Yom Ha’atzmaut commemoration / celebration has been the largest of its kind in Canada. This year, in partnership with the JCC, and the UJA Federation of Greater Toronto, our event carries an extraordinary weight, marking the communal mourning of the most significant massacre of Jews since the Holocaust and celebrating our indomitable spirit of resilience.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Now more than ever, we look forward to uniting the Jewish community to stand in support of Israel.

Our Yom Ha’atzmaut programming is entirely free for the community. But in order to ensure a meaningful Yom HaZikaron / Yom Ha’atzmaut experience, Mizrachi Canada relies heavily on the support of friends and donors.

Tekes Ma'avar / Transition Ceremony

Mourn together as a community

Yom Ha’atzmaut is always preceded by Israel’s national day of remembrance, Yom HaZikaron, a solemn day set aside to remember the nation’s fallen soldiers together with those deliberately killed by acts of terror.
Our Tekes Ma’avar will poignantly commemorate Yom Hazikaron by honoring Israel’s fallen soldiers and terror victims, including those lost in the October 7th attacks and the valiant soldiers who have since made the ultimate sacrifice. Join us for a heartfelt ceremony, video presentation and impactful speeches from guest speakers from Israel, reflecting on their bravery and dedication.

Yom Haatzmaut Rally & Concert

Stand strong together for Israel

As we transition to Yom Ha’atzmaut during the second half of our Tekes Ma’avar, we embody our theme “Stronger Than Ever: Stronger Together.” This year in lieu of the festivities and activities we will be holding a rally, with speeches, and musical performances that affirm our unyielding support for Israel, especially critical in these challenging times.

Enjoy musical performances by The Solomon Brothers and Zusha!

Tefilat Chagigit

Unite in prayer for the people of Israel
