Yom HaZikaron and Yom HaAtzmaut

Yom HaZikaron (Memorial Day), Yom HaAtzmaut (Independence Day) are observed as national holidays in Israel.

The Israeli Knesset established the day before Yom HaAtzmaut as Yom HaZikaron, a Memorial Day for soldiers who lost their lives fighting in the War of Independence and in other subsequent battles.

Yom HaAtzmaut, Israeli Independence Day, marks the establishment of the modern state of Israel in 1948. It is observed on or near the 5th of Iyar in the Hebrew calendar, which usually falls in April.
