The game began with the residents telling the students what they remember from 1947/48 when Israel gained Independence. There was then some competition between the two split teams. At the end of the night there were handshakes and hugs all around. The program was sponsored in part by Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando.

Like many Israeli holidays, there's a lot of singing, dancing, and eating. Family and friends gather to reminisce of both victory and statehood. Yet, Israel Independence Day takes place right after Yore Hazikaron--the Me- morial Day for fallen Israel Defense Forces soldiers. Plac- ing the two holidays so close together is a reminder that Is- raeli independence has come at the very highest cost--the lives of sacrificed soldiers. So what does this combina- tion look like in Israel? In Beit She'an, Israel, a tombstone commemorates Captain Tzvi Kaplan, aged 28 when he died in Operation Protective Edge in 2014. (This was a military operation aimed at stopping frequent rocket fire from Gaza into Israel.) Kaplan was known to be a particularly kind and spirited individual. Friends of his built a stream passing through a park near where he lived honoring his memory. At the other end of the spectrum, Yom Ha'atzmaut's happy festivities ring out in Jerusalem, and everywhere in Israel. It's often the kids who truly take holiday cel- ebrations to heart. Ice cream cones, dress up, or flag-waving anyone?
