Happy 70th Birthday, Israel!
April 19, 2018
Happy Yom Ha'atzmaut From Jerusalem!Israel celebrates its 70th birthday this year.
Fireworks, parades and dancing in the streets are taking place all over the country. In honor of the day, we've found some videos that highlight why this day is different from all other days.
Israel 70: The Home of Hope is an uplifting short overview of Israel at this milestone.
Still debating whether to make Israel your next travel destination? Here are 70 reasons to come!
And this moving offering features 12,000 Israelis delivering a powerful message for Yom Ha'atzma'ut - Israel's 70th Independence Day - in the form of one the country's most iconic songs, Al Kol Eleh conducted by Koolulam. The bittersweet lyrics so well embody the determination of Israel's people through the sweet and the hard times.
Your Prayers in the WallIt is only because of that very first Yom Ha'atzmaut that we are able to be here to deliver your prayers to the Western Wall in Jerusalem for you. (Your prayers are strictly confidential and are deleted from our system as soon as they are delivered to the Wall.)
This is a free service that we consider a privilege to provide. Jewish tradition, however, teaches that prayer and charity, together, have the power to change Divine decrees. So please consider super-charging your prayer with a donation to our charity fund for disabled children in Jerusalem. Your donation, however small, will help provide much needed services, therapy and medications for severely disabled children in Jerusalem.
Happy Birthday, Israel! May you all enjoy this wonderful day, whether you're here with us, celebrating in Jerusalem, or wishing you were!
Blessings from Jerusalem,
