In honor of Israel's 72nd birthday, this Yom HaAtzmaut, Prizmah, the Center for Jewish Day Schools in North America, is excited to partner with Israel to send special greetings to students, teachers and families of 300+ Jewish day schools and yeshivas. Each short recording from a famous Israeli figure will mean so much more than words can express, and will help cement the personal and special connection we hope to deepen every year through our Israeli Independence day programing. Strengthening ties between the Diaspora and Israel, through authentic moments of personal touch is such an exciting project and we are deeply grateful to each of you for taking the time to share a glimpse with us about what you love about Israel and what you hope for its future.

Isaac Herzog, Chairman of the Jewish Agency for Israel
