THE Cape Town Jewish community celebrated Israel’s 60th anniversary in a long week of events in which Netzer was proud to play an important role.The week began with moving Yom-Hasho’ah and Yom Hazikaron ceremonies, followed by a huge Yom Ha’atzmaut ceremony, together with the entire Jewish community, at the Ratanga Junction Theme Park.

The Netzer team wore their new green shirts, and carried their blue flags. They sold curry & rice at their Netzer stall, marched inside the venue with their flags and with great “ruach”, and even went on stage to perform a memorable dance number.

And that’s not all: less than 24 hours later, the movement held a special “Yom Ha’atzmaut Ceremony” in the Green Point shul for the entire community, followed by an “Israel@60” sleepover at the Wynberg shul.

Check out the photos … we still need to catch our breath! 🙂
