The Jewish national calendar of Israel is populated by new holidays that Israel has placed at the center of our national and Jewish consciousness and which define and set aside the most significant time of the year in Israeli society. These holidays – bunched together within one week – are Yom Hashoah (Holocaust Memorial Day), Yom Hazikaron (Memorial Day for Fallen Soldiers) and Yom Haatzmaut (Independence Day). It would not be an exaggeration to say these three days together constitute the “High Holidays” season of Israeli life. To understand the kind of emotional response this dramatic week provokes, we will read some of the songs and poems that are traditionally sung and recited at public memorials and celebrations in Israel.

With Rabbi Zac Kamenetz
Zac wants to know ‘What good can I do in this world? What have folks before me tried?’ Most often, Zac looks to ancient Jewish sources of wisdom for inspiration to these questions, but he gets some help from Leonard Cohen, Mark Rothko, and his wife Jen, too. Zac received rabbinic ordination in Jerusalem, and has degrees from the University of Maryland and the Graduate Theological Union. As a native of a couple of coastal states, Zac is always ready to jump in the ocean. When you see him around the JCCSF, you should tell him about the last best bite of food you had.
