Today is the 70th Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day. However, it isn’t the day that Israel was born. Rather, it is the day of Israel’s rebirth 70 years ago in its ancestral land, with Jerusalem as its capital. The day when the Jewish Nation celebrates its return to its homeland, after 2,000 years of exile. Yom Ha’atzmaut is a special day when Israel’s leaders gather in the holy capital to commemorate the special gift bestowed upon us by God through the efforts of our defense army. Celebrate with Israel and SHARE the TRUTH about Jerusalem!
