Yom Yerushalayim, Jerusalem Day, is an Israeli national holiday commemorating the reunification of Jerusalem after the Six-Day War. This year, the holiday begins the evening of May 9th, and will celebrate the 54th year of the city's liberation. Join Jewish National Fund-USA and special guest speaker Alon Wald of Ammunition Hill, as we learn about the history and importance of Jerusalem Day, and how you can teach the history of Jerusalem and the Six-Day War to your students. Also hear from Merav Lieberman from Olam Shalem, an educational platform for teachers who work with Jewish communities around the world to strengthen the connection between their students and Jerusalem. JNF-USA has many resources and educational materials that you can share with your classes throughout the year. Zoom information will be provided upon registration.
Participants will open their own E-Z Tree™ Account including two trees to plant in Israel and will receive two hours of Professional Development.
Head of Marketing & Operations, Ammunition Hill
Alon Wald is the Head of Marketing & Operations at Ammunition Hill National Heritage Center, a facility supported by Jewish National Fund-USA, and the site that led to the reunification of Jerusalem in the Six-Day War. Wald is the son of Captain Rami Wald z"l, who fought in the 55th Paratroopers Brigade in Jerusalem during the Six-Day War and was killed in action while leading the Paratroopers into Ammunition Hill. Wald served his country as an officer in several elite IDF units, the Israeli Secret Service (Shabak), and oversaw security operations at Israeli embassies. Thanks to Jewish National Fund-USA, Ammunition Hill has evolved into an international landmark that presents the legacy of the liberation of Jerusalem and a must-see destination.
