Celebrating 70 years of independence with torch lighting ceremony at the Shlichim conference of Bnei Akiva USA & Canada


60 shlichim came together for a weekend full of longing for the Land of Israel at the annual Shlichim Conference of Bnei Akiva of USA and Canada. In honor of the 70th anniversary of Independence of the State of Israel, on Saturday night the shlichim experienced a live torch lighting ceremony, simulating the one that takes place every year in Israel on the eve of Yom Haatzmaut. Israeli pride was felt by all!
