Reading of Israel's Declaration of Independence and Prayer for the Safe Return of Our Hostages Live From the Egalitarian Kotel

Every year between Yom Hashoah and Yom Ha'atzmaut, the World Zionist Organization together with partner organizations hold a festive event of reading Megillat Ha'atzmaut at the Egalitarian Kotel. They broadcast it live in different languages to the whole Jewish world, to celebrate Israel's independence and strengthen our sense of Jewish peoplehood in Israel and abroad. Watch this year's recording below.
