Every year between Yom HaShoah and Yom Ha’atzmaut, we hold a festive event of reading Megillat Ha’atzmaut with trope (cantillation) at the Egalitarian Kotel.

We broadcast it live in different languages to the entire Jewish world. This is our way of celebrating Israel’s Independence Day and strengthening our sense of Jewish peoplehood in Israel and abroad.
