Yom Hazikaron Community Ceremony
Featuring a Performance of the Play Knock Knock
Join us for a moving ceremony to honor the memory and legacy of the many Israelis who have fallen in combat or acts of terror. Led by youth from the Detroit Jewish community as well as past and present Shinshinim (emissaries from Israel), the entire community is invited to gather on behalf of the women and men who made the ultimate sacrifice to defend the freedom and security of our Jewish homeland.
A performance of the award-winning play, Knock Knock by Niv Petel will follow the ceremony. Knock Knock describes the internal conflict parents face in a nation where children are destined to be soldiers from the day they are born. This heartfelt and insightful drama powerfully connects the audience to the Israeli experience.
