2017 International Gathering
Thursday June 8, 2017
Our project was chosen by the My Family Story judging committee for the 2017 International Exhibition at Beit Hatfutsot, and I received a ticket to Israel to attend the festivities! What a privilege and honor!
Arriving at the Beit Hatfutsot for the gathering... so excited!
I brought my sister Alma (age 10) to enjoy the festivities and celebration!
Dan Tadmor, CEO of Beit Hatfutsot, welcomes the winners
Entertainment/pep provided by Tzofim (Israeli Scouts)
Gathering of parents from 25+ countries to discuss the fundamentals of Jewish Peoplehood... inspirational!
Each region/language group received a personalized tour of the Beit Hatfutsot... fantastic exhibitions!
My favorite exhibit was "Heroes: the Trailblazers of the Jewish People" which was very fun, interactive and inspirational
Cool interactive exhibit about Lydia Litvyak, a trailblazing female Jewish fighter pilot in the Soviet Air Force during World War II
