Meaningful Month of May: Yom HaAtzmaut
May 9 @ 4:00 pm - 10:00 pm
In Judaism, it’s all about community.
We gather together to remember our history, mourn our losses, celebrate our culture, and dream for our future. This is highlighted beautifully in the spring, and we invite you
to join your Shalom Austin community as we mark Yom HaShoah, Yom HaZikaron, and Yom HaAtzmaut – the “Meaningful Month of May.”
For the first time this year, we are adding educational electives to each celebration or commemoration. Whether you are interested in learning more about the holiday, participating in the ritual aspects, or both, there will be a way for everyone to connect.
