About

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 will be bigger than ever before as we bridge attendees from a wide spectrum of the Jewish community to unite us all in our dedication to Israel.

After two years of marking the day in our homes, we are thrilled to unite the Jewish community under one (outdoor) roof to stand with Israel. Especially now, with significant rises in terrorist attacks in Israel, it is crucial for our community to unite and show our support and love for the State of Israel.

Aside from the “nightime shuk”, our entire Yom Ha’atzmaut programming is entirely free. 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

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.
At our Tekes Ma’avar (transition ceremony), we will honour Israel’s fallen soldiers and victims of terror through a special video presentation, a guest speaker, choir performance, and moving words and dedications. The evening will transition into a celebratory ceremony for Yom Ha’atzmaut guest speakers flown in from Israel, festive music, tfillah chagigit and so much more.

Our Yom Ha’atzmaut celebrations will continue on the following day May 5th, with a “daytime festival” in which children (from all Jewish day schools) and families will come to “travel around Israel”. Imagine making your own Havdalah candles in Tzfat, creating salt art at the Dead Sea, and ‘Learn to Scribe’ at the Safrut Table in Tiberias.

We’ve partnered with many local Jewish organizations to provide you with educational and FUN activities highlighting all that Israel has to offer.

The day will be filled with various activities and booths, games, inflatables, food vendors, live music, and fun for the entire family!
