Jews throughout the world are thinking about Israel now and what the State of Israel means to them and the sacrifice that soldiers have made in defending the land. Toldot Yisrael is a unique Jerusalem based nonprofit that is dedicated to recording and sharing firsthand testimonies of those who helped found the State of Israel. They just released a video entitles The Volunteers: Answering the Call to History. This video joins Echoes of the Shofar and The Story of the Vote in a video series for the History Channel. You can see some of their other videos and can incorporate them into your Yom HaZikaron, Yom HaAtzmaut and Yom Yerushalayim programming as well as into any programs or classes that relate to Zionism and modern Jewish history. It is critical that today and every day we remember the sacrifices and contributions people made to establish and defend the State of Israel. Thanks to Toldot Yisrael we have these stories and videos to share with our students, families and communities.
