The National Library of Israel presents “The Modern Israeli Calendar’

“The Modern Israeli Calendar” – an exploration of contemporary Israeli society through key events in the national calendar, as they come to life through the collections of the National Library of Israel (NLI). Presented by Shuvi Hoffman, NLI’s Head of Global Jewish Education, this program will explore the diverse communal roots of Israel’s various national, cultural and memorial days, offering an exciting opportunity to understand and engage with the rich communal and cultural tapestry of modern Israeli life.
