This year, Wednesday May 11 marks Remembrance Day for Israel's fallen. This solemn day is followed by the joyous celebration of Independence Day on Thursday May 12. 

In honor of its 68th birthday, Israel will celebrate the heroism of Israeli citizens. 
In this spirit, as it has done in previous years, KKL-JNF has prepared its many parks, forests and memorial sites for the throngs of visitors expected this Wednesday and Thursday, and of course, a series of events around Israel in honor of Memorial Day and Independence Day free of charge. Check out our events, recreation sites and more in order to celebrate Israel Independence Day the KKL-JNF way.
