‘Aliyah Day’

Israel recently declared a new national holiday!   Aliyah Day will celebrate Israel and its people, who hail from the four corners of the earth.  The new holiday will fall on the seventh day of Cheshvan (November 8 this year), coinciding with Torah readings in synagogues around the world that include the passage from Genesis where G-d tells Abraham, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you” – that land, of course, being Israel.
