Livingston Community Enjoys Yom Ha’atzmaut

Livingston celebrated Yom Ha’atzmaut with a flag-raising over town hall on April 15. The event featured a daglanut performance by students from the Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy. The annual Israel Independence Day event, organized by the Livingston Celebrates Israel Committee, is a project of the township’s diversity and inclusion committee. It is believed to be one of the few municipalities to offer a Yom Ha’atzmaut celebration.

Also at this year’s event, township officials announced a proclamation declaring April 15, 2021 as Rabbi Elie Mischel Day in Livingston, in honor of the religious leader at Suburban Torah synagogue who, along with his family, will be making aliyah this summer. The town noted Rabbi Mischel’s dedication to the greater Livingston community and Israel celebration. Also presenting the rabbi with an award at the event was the office Congresswoman Mikie Sherrill (D-11).
