On Yom Ha’atzmaut, the WTA community held its own virtual tekes hamesuot (lighting of torches). Incorporating pieces of the ceremony that was aired live [in Israel], as well as songs and videos, each grade had an opportunity to express their gratitude and honor the many heroes in Israel and in our community. Once called upon, each class stood, showed banners of appreciation prepared beforehand, and helped “light” each of the twelve torches—referencing the 12 shevatim.

Programming continued later in the day with an interactive Israeli culture presentation, stories and sing-along for early childhood, as well as Kahoot Yisraeli—a live, online trivia game that tested the students’ knowledge about Eretz Yisrael!
