Welcome friends to our Yom Hamishpaha edition of the Hebrew Podcasts Newsletter.

We are sending your way Happy Yom Mishpaha.

Yom Hamishpaha - יום המשפחה

Family Day יום המשפחה (Yom Hamishpaha) is celebrated in Israel on ל' שבט ,תשע"ט, Lamed BeShvat (the 30th day of Shvat - the 5th Hebrew month) which falls this year on Tuesday, February 5, 2019. Mother's Day was first celebrated in Haifa in 1951 on the second day of Hanukkah. The date later changed to the day that Henrietta Szold died. Henrietta Szold was called "The children's mother" because she founded the organization Youth Aliyah that rescued children from Nazi Germany. The name of the holiday later changed to Family Day to highlight the contribution of fathers to the family.

Some of the holiday traditions are to celebrate this day together as a family, and to give gifts such as cards, flowers, jewelry, chocolate and cake. Many kids prepare their own homemade gifts and cakes.
