Happy 57th Birthday Israel!

Today is Yom HaAtzmeut, Israel’s Independence Day! 57 years ago on the Jewish calendar, the British left their mandate-controlled Palestine and Israel embraced its independence.

Israel is a complex, beautiful, amazing, little country. Young as a modern political entity, but ancient – people have lived there for over 4000 years.

Celebrate!
