Yom Yerushalayim is a highlight in the Mizrachi UK Calendar.
Our annual schools trip takes 30 of the top students from Jewish schools to experience Yom Yerushalayim first-hand in Jerusalem. Students learn about Jerusalem’s history, hear from top speakers such as Yehuda Glick and Sivan Rahav-Meir and join the local residents for their celebrations such as praying at the Kotel and dancing in the Flag March.
In 2019, Mizrachi UK celebrated Yom Yerushalayim with Likud-Herut UK, Ner Yisrael Community, Hendon United Synagogue and Alei Tzion. The evening hosted a special guest from Israel and Israeli dignitaries as well as a performance from the Independent Jewish Day School Choir. Rabbi Andrew Shaw led a special ceremony, with an accompanying audio-visual presentation and beautiful, moving singing from Chazzan Jonny Turgel. A festive buffet reception was enjoyed by over 200 people.
