Our week of celebrating Israel begins with the solemn observance of Yom HaZikaron, Israel’s Memorial Day. 

Join your Greater MetroWest community and our rishonimand shlichotas we remember Israel’s fallen soldiers, victims of terror attacks, and all who gave their lives for the state of Israel.

This year’s ceremony will also honor the victims of the October 7 attacks and those who fought bravely to defend their homes and families.

Security at Federation Events Your Greater MetroWest Community Security Initiative (CSI) is coordinating all security with local, county, and state law enforcement. At every Federation event, all available resources are utilized to ensure your safety. Three important items of note:

  • Bag policy: Backpacks, luggage, and large purses are not permitted at events. We encourage you not to bring a bag, if possible, or to bring a very small bag. All bags may be subject to search.
  • Additional security measures: Additional security procedures may be implemented (e.g. metal detectors) as needed.
  • Social media protocol: We ask you not to share the location of a Federation event prior to or during the event and to refrain from posting about a Federation activity until after it has ended, and the site is clear of attendees.

Building an inclusive community is a priority. Please email [email protected] to let us know if you require an accommodation to meaningfully participate in an event. One of our Federation professionals will reach out to you to learn more.
