A Message from the URJ for Yom Hazikaron & Yom Ha’atzmaut

In this short video, Rabbi Rick Jacobs, the President of the Union for Reform Judaism, encourages viewers to commemorate, connect and commit to Israel on the country’s memorial and independence days. Despite the fact that this video from 2015 references events that were current at that time, the general message of tapping into one’s love of Israel while struggling with her policies can be relevant every year.
