Northern Virginia Commemorates Yom Hazikaron
Tuesday, April 17, 7:30pm
Featuring a “new” documentary, The Space Between Us
As a community we will come together for Yom Hazikaron, Israel’s Memorial Day Service so that we may honor soldiers who have given their lives to defend the State of Israel and victims of terrorist attacks. Join us as we watch an original documentary called, The Space Between Us, a movie produced for the Northern Virginia community. Made in collaboration with the National Museum of American Jewish Military History and Yad Lebanim, an Israeli organization dedicated to supporting bereaved families. Through personal interviews and intimate conversations, the movie provides us with a rare glimpse into the world of bereavement and how families in both Israel and the United States deal with loss head on.
The movie will be followed by a unique musical number and the singing of “Hatikvah” as we commemorate those who have fallen while defending their countries.
