Memorial Day Educational Activities

Memorial Day Material
Each year, the Yitzhak Rabin Center produces and distributes educational materials to all schools and army bases.  The material focuses on themes relating to leadership, civil society, democracy and the sociology of the Israeli society. Videos, posters, photographic exhibitions, candles and stickers are also distributed. 

The Shenkar Project
The Shenkar Project is a cooperative project between the Yitzhak Rabin Center and the Shenkar School of Engineering and Design where students take part in an annual competition of creating commemorative posters reflecting the Memorial Day of Yitzhak Rabin, z”l.  

The competition encourages continued dialogue on Rabin – the man, the assassination and his legacy – using the design and production of posters as an artistic and personal outlet for today’s generation. Students participate in educational workshops utilizing films, photos and written materials on Yitzhak Rabin. These workshops then serve as the basis for the poster designs in accordance with the year’s theme. The posters serve as both a method and a content tool. 

Each year, a different theme is selected that reflects the values of the Israeli public and fit within the various activities of the country’s educational system.
