Today is Yom HaAtzma’ut – Israeli Independence Day

Today we celebrate Israeli Independence Day. We remember why this day is important for the Jewish people while we celebrate the beauty of the country and the many gifts she gives. She is not perfect and many can argue (and they do) about Israel’s many challenges. But Israel is a living democracy, the only one, in the Middle East. And the more we love her, the more we must speak out to make her all she can be. May we celebrate this day for generations to come.
