Israel’s new year holiday is now a full-fledged national holiday with a whole host of events planned in the capital.
New Year’s Day in Israel marks the day on which the Hebrew alphabet was created, and it’s also a day to mark the anniversary of the establishment of Israel as a Jewish state.
The Israeli government’s new official holiday will be called “Rosh Hashanah” and will be celebrated on March 31, 2018, and the celebration will take place at the new Jerusalem Museum in Tel Aviv.
A huge array of activities will be planned for the event, including a giant parade, fireworks, a carnival and a festival.
There will also be a giant music festival, and more than 200,000 people will be expected to descend on the capital to mark their arrival.
The government is also planning to mark “Ava” the Jewish New Year with a day of celebration in the Old City of Jerusalem.
The city is renowned for its large Jewish population, and this year it will be home to a parade, a parade of Jewish men and women and a giant display of Jewish coins, jewellery and religious artefacts.
Ava is also a full day of national mourning, which includes a huge festival, a big carnival, a fireworks display and the inauguration of the new parliament.
In Jerusalem, celebrations are being planned for “Avis Avis” the holiday on the same day as the new Jewish year, which marks the anniversary for the founding of Israel in 1948.
The capital will also host the inauguration ceremony for the new Israeli Parliament.
There are also plans to hold events in other cities including Haifa and Tel Aviv, with the new government also looking to increase the number of religious festivals planned for 2019.
