As part of the ongoing partnership between the Joint Council of Mechinot (Pre-Military Leadership Academies) and the KKL, last Thursday the mechinot marked Israel’s seventieth anniversary and their partnership with the KKL and Israel Trail Encounter with a special event on the trail.

Dani Zamir, CEO of the Joint Council, reports: Israel Trail Encounter’s Mechina Day, which Raya and Yossi Ofner have organized with admirable consistency every year for over a decade with the KKL and HaMidrasha at Oranim, focused this year on Israel’s Declaration of Independence.

As part of the event, discussion groups worked together to reformulate parts of the declaration, which was read at a stirring ceremony at the Wall of the Fallen at the IDF Armored Corps Memorial in Latrun.
