The month of May
May 10, 2019
The month of May contains happy, joyous celebrations coupled with sad reflective memorials. Shortly after commemorating our deliverance from Egyptian bondage during Passover, we remember the 6 million who perished in the Shoah. Yom Hashoah occured on May 2 this year.
Yom HaZikaron, Israel Memorial Day and Yom HaAtzmaut, Israel Independence Day, followed shortly after on May 8 and 9.
On Sunday, May 19, “A Salute to Israel” will take place at The Mayflower of Winter Park, celebrating 71 years of Israeli Independence. This musical and educational program will be a fun way to learn about Israel becoming a nation on May 14, 1948. The program is open to people of all ages and religious backgrounds.
Paul and Terri Fine Stenzler will share with participants the folk music of Israel and how Israel’s experience securing its independence is reflected in its musical life.
This program is sponsored by the Jewish Pavilion; refreshments will be served. The Mayflower is located at 1620 Mayflower Court, Winter Park.
