TO ALL MACHALNIKS IN ISRAEL AND ABROAD 29th March, 2015
MACHAL’S YOM HAZICHARON SERVICE
We shall be meeting at the World Machal Memorial to honour the memory of our 123 Fallen Comrades. Please do your utmost to attend this year’s Remembrance Service, and your friends and relatives are most welcome to join us.
THE SERVICE WILL COMMENCE AT 10.55 HOURS SHARP!
This year we have asked some of the children and grandchildren of 1946-48 Machalniks to participate in the ceremony, and also some Machalniks who have served in the current Machal program under the auspices of the IDF and Ministry of Defense.
Following the Memorial Service you can take the opportunity of enjoying a picnic lunch with comrades and friends in the picnic area of Sha’ar Hagai, in which case please bring you own picnic lunch
All the facilities and logistics for our service will be provided by Keren Kayemet L’Yisrael. In order to cover expenses, Machalniks and friends who will be attending the service are requested to make a donation to Machal of NS50 per person, for adults only. Payments should be made only in cash at the cashier’s table at the ceremony. Please be sure to have the exact amount of NS 50 available as finding the right amount of change may be a problem.
