Jabotinsky Day (Hebrew: יוֹם־זַ׳בּוֹטִינְסְקִי) is an Israeli national holiday celebrated annually on the twenty ninth of the Hebrew month of Tammuz, to commemorate the life and vision of Zionist leader Ze'ev Jabotinsky.[1]


Jabotinsky Day was created by the Israeli Knesset as part of the Jabotinsky Law. According to the law, Jabotinsky Day is held once a year, on the 29th of Tammuz, the day of Ze'ev Jabotinsky's death. On this day; a state memorial service is held on Mount Herzl in Jerusalem. In IDF camps and schools, time is devoted to his achievements and Zionist vision. A symposium is organized by the Public Council and the Knesset holds a special session. If Tammuz 29 falls on a Sabbath, Jabotinsky Day is held on the following Sunday.
