The modern state of Israel is where Jewish values come to life, and is a home for Jews from around the world. We see spiritual meaning in the existence of the state and are proud of its continued growth and flourishing. Each year, Hillel celebrates Israel with the Israel Independence Day Carnival. This festive FUN-raising event is held at the school and includes carnival games, bounce houses, prizes, food, dancing, and attracts more than 600 Hillel students, as well as countless other children from the metropolitan Detroit Jewish community. Parents, students, alumni, grandparents, and faculty work together to ensure the success of this event, which has become a favorite tradition at Hillel Day School.
