The families of Temple Emanu-El celebrated Israeli Independence Day, or Yom HaAtzmaut, Saturday, at the temple beginning, with a bagel breakfast. The children enjoyed time on the playground where they participated in an archaeological dig in the sandbox for Israeli coins.
As with any birthday party, the children sang “Happy Birthday” to Israel and enjoyed cake. Guests also made blue-and-white beaded bracelets and learned two traditional Israeli dances from Rabbi Brenner Glickman.
