Yom Hazikaron Service starts in 10 minutes

04 May, 2014

Just a reminder that the Yom Hazikaron Service is about to start. Please join us to commemorate all the fallen soldiers of Israel.

Many thanks to all

27 Apr, 2014

Many thanks to all those who came to commemorate Yom Hashoah at Israel Island. An extra big thank you to Explorer and her mother (A Holocaust survivor), who honoured us with her story. The whole community are grateful to you both.

For those who weren't able to make it to the service, this is how we marked Yom Hashoah this year. We started with the lowering of the Flag and sounding of the siren, followed by the lighting of the 6 avukot (torches) which represented the 6 million Jews we lost during the Shoah. Each torch also stood for - the children, the women, the men, the minorities, the righteous gentiles and the partisans. After the lighting of the avukot, we listened to a heart wrenching rendition of Kel Maleh Rachamim (as performed by Cantor Azi Schwartz). After this, Shmoo Snook led us with the Kaddish prayer. Then, we heard the personal stories of the community testifying to the horrors of the Shoah. It was truly a deeply moving moment. We then concluded the official part of the commemoration by standing again for Hatikva. Several community members remained after the event to add the names of their family members to the dedication wall, to chat and even sing!

Once again, thanks to all who made this commemoration service a memorable event in honour of all those who perished in or survived the terrors of the Shoah.
