Balfour Day With Israel Forever
November 2, 1917
Not just a day in history, but the first international recognition of our right to a national home in our ancestral land. Join us in celebrating one step toward the fulfillment of the thousands-year-old dream!
There are so many great ways that you can create a Balfour Day celebration for your community or group, or even just your family and friends!
- Learn about the importance of the Balfour Declaration and how it celebrated in communities worldwide before the State of Israel was born
- Party like its 1917! Hold a vintage Balfour celebration full of old photos, copies of the Balfour Declaration, and watch old videos of pre-State Israel. Not only will you be teaching about Balfour, you'll be exploring Jewish life and identity to a world who could only DREAM of a Jewish State, teaching today's generation how much we often take for granted.
- Watch My Herzl and learn about the legacy of the father of modern Zionism, "architect of Balfour." Discussion Guide available!
- For a formal discussion, download articles and read them together, analyzing the significance of this historical event to modern Israel, modern Zionism, and our lives today
