The Yamim Project

A Resource for Rethinking How We Commemorate Yom HaZikaron & Yom HaAtzmaut. How will these National Days be different this year, with many hostages still in captivity?

This year, in anticipation of the “Yamim” in a post October 7th world, the M² team commissioned designer Eli Kaplan Wildmann to create evocative artwork which can be used as a facilitation tool to engage learners in the experiences and feelings they have encountered during the past months. We invite you to use these postcards / posters also as a way to engage with the questions of memory and independence in a situation where we still have over 130 people being held captive in Gaza.
