Free Kids Activities on Yom Haatzmaut 2013, Apr 15, 2013
Thanks to Kosherfrugal.com for this amazing list of Yom Haatzmaut activities that are FREE!:
65 Historical sites will be open and FREE on the 65th Yom Ha'Atzmaut, next week!
These are sponsored by Misrad HaTarbut V'HaSport and the Mo'etza L'Shimur Atarey Moreshet.
That is April 16, 2013, just so there is no confusion.
I'm sure there are other places that are offering free programs or free admission.
Please add information for other places in the comments, or send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll add it in! Thank you.
I have tried, wherever possible, to link to websites in English. There were some museums/historical sites that only had Hebrew websites, though. My apologies in advance.
Have a wonderful Yom Ha'atzmaut. May it bring us closer to the Geulah Sh'laymah!
p.s. I just stayed up way too late researching and translating this list, so please share it with all your friends, so it will have been time REALLY well spent! :-) Thanks!
