A Festive Reading of Megillat Ha’atzmaut 2023

Dear friends and partners!

We would like to invite you to join us again this year and take part in an exciting tradition –

Festive Reading of Megillat Ha’atzmaut at the Egalitarian Kotel

As you know, this is a multi-denomination multi-organizational event focused on reading the Declaration of Independence with tropes alongside a prayer for the State of Israel and World Jewry.

The event will be broadcasted live from the Kotel in multiple languages throughout the Jewish world and will be open to anyone who wishes to take part of the audience.

The event will be accompanied by educational activities centering on the Declaration of Independence, available for interested parties.

In the 75th year to the State of Israel, we are excited to hold this event for the third year running, in the hopes of it becoming an annual tradition that will reaffirm the message of the Declaration of Independence and strengthen our sense of Jewish Peoplehood in Israel and abroad.

You may find the recording of last year’s event here:

The World Zionist Organization will host this event with various partners, rabbis, public figures and more.
