Yom Ha’atzmaut

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ISRAEL!  Today is Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s independence day.  Today we celebrate the state of Israel turning 63 years old!

As yesterday was the saddest day of the year for Israel, today is the happiest.  The sacrifice of those remembered yesterday was for the joy that all Israeli Jews feel today. It seemed as though the whole country was out celebrating in the streets last night. Today every family is barbecuing by the beach watching the IsraeliAirForce’s air show.  The Jewish people are rejoicing in their homeland and for that we are all very thankful.

עם ישראל חי!
