Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

This year’s celebrations of Yom Ha’Atzmaut were tempered by the current war in Israel, but while everyone is all cognizant of the ongoing hostilities, Jews cannot remain in a constant state of fear. The day started, as it does every year, with a special tekes during which the flag was raised from half-staff to the top and WTA proudly declared the celebration of Yom Ha’Atzmaut—Am Yisrael Chai! The school day was filled with activities, including a school-wide zimriyah and rehearsals for each class’ special daglanut performance.

WTA has developed a tradition of hosting a BBQ for Yom Ha’Atzmaut over the years, and this year’s evening was no different. Good food, friends, family and music have always made for a celebratory atmosphere, and the inclusion of class daglanut performances have enhanced the event in recent years. This time, the avira (ambiance) was even more excited, as the evening culminated with a special concert featuring Simcha on Wheels. What a special way to celebrate the persistence and power of Am Yisrael!
