This link opens up a PDF file of Twilight: Moving from Memorial to Independence, a ceremony written by the Masorti Foundation for Conservative Judaism in Israel to mark the transition between Yom Hazikaron and Yom Ha’atzmaut. This booklet, which contains readings, poems, meditations, prayers, stories, and a festive Ma’ariv service with Hallel, offers a model for a remembrance and transition ceremony which can be used and adapted by congregations in Israel and abroad.
