was established in 2016 to honor Olim,
immigrants to Israel, for their contributions.
It was set for 7th day of the Hebrew month Marcheshvan,
near the Torah portion Lech Lecha, in which
G‑d promises the Land of Israel to Avram’s descendants.
A major celebration was held in Jerusalem, Israel.
I do not know who sent the invitations, how, or to whom.
But after clearing security, there was food,
and a show with music and dancing and
entertainment, and of course speeches,
to a diverse group of Olim in the audience.
We live near Tchernichowsky Street,
and there he was on one of the huge screens.
This is not the usual RJS Shabbat Shalom greeting,
but instead of a pretty photo, I decided to
share a short clip of one impressive performance.
Happy Aliyah Day.
