How weird will it be to skip that annual BBQ you always go to? I know I’ll miss the feeling that overpowers me during those brief moments where Yom HaZikaron transitions into Yom Ha’Atzmaut. But, just because we are staying home doesn’t mean we can’t support Israeli businesses and celebrate in a special way!
Enjoy the day at home under lockdown by picking up (ahead of time) some hummus and falafel from your favorite spot and getting yourself one of these special treats!
