Yom Ha'atzmaut 5775: Israel @ 67

Yeshivah of Flatbush celebrated Israel's 67th birthday on Yom Ha'atzmaut like no where else. The school prayed shacharit together in the auditorium with a beautiful Tefillah Hagigit, one that set the light and spiritual mood for the rest of the day.
As minyan came to a close students filed down to the gym for a delicious breakfast of bagels, blue and white doughnuts, and cereal. Students munched on breakfast as Rabbi Besser picked up the mic and began singing while others students joined in. The entire school sang and danced together. It was exhilarating dancing with the flag of Israel.
The next part of the program took place in the auditorium where everyone was dazzled by the joint choir performance of the High School, Middle Division, and Lower Division Choirs. Celebrating Yom Ha'atzmaut at Flatbush is truly unique.
