This evening the celebration of Yom Ha’atzmaut commences. The observation of the establishment of the modern state of Israel on May 14th, 1948 begins on the eve of April 15th (it is probably being remembered as I write this) and ends tomorrow night (the 16th).
What do people do on this holiday? You can read about some of the things they do here.
I would like to wish all of my Jewish friends a happy holiday. What happened in May of 1948 was a miracle. I know it is difficult for Israel to rejoice too much this year with enemies who wish to see their destruction surrounding them. As God has done in the past, He will protect the tiny little nation in the future.
Please pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
