Balfour Initiative

BALFOUR DAY: A CALL FOR CELEBRATION!

A celebration of The Balfour Declaration invites a deeper understanding of the long history of our struggle to create a place where Jews could live free in our ancient homeland.

JOIN US IN CELEBRATING THE CENTENARY OF THIS HISTORICAL EVENT THAT HELPED PAVE THE WAY TO OUR RETURN TO JEWISH SOVEREIGNTY IN OUR ANCIENT HOMELAND

From November 2nd through November 29 every year, let us honor the important legacy of the Balfour Declaration and never forget the steps that led to the creation of our one and only Jewish State.



WHAT CAN YOU DO?

  • LEARN or TEACH about the importance of the Balfour Declaration and how it was celebrated in communities worldwide before the State of Israel was born
  • PARTY like it's 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!
  • DISCUSS and read articles with friends, family or your community, and explore the significance of this historical event to modern Israel, modern Zionism, and our lives today.

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! CONTACT US for original FREE resources to help bring your Balfour celebrations and learning experiences to life!
