Welcome friends to Hebrew Podcasts Yom Ha'atzmaut Newsletter.
We are sending your way Chag Sameach greetings and Happy Yom Ha'atzmaut.
Yom Ha'atzmaut (Independence day) - Iyar 4 - is celebrated on Thursday, May 9, 2019 when Israel turns 71 years old. It commemorates May 14, 1948 (Iyar 5, 5708), when David Ben Gurion declared the independent state of Israel after the British Mandate of Palestine ended.
Yom Ha'zikaron (Remembrance day) always precedes Yom Ha'atzmaut and in 2019 Wednesday, May 8, 2019. It is a memorial day for all the fallen soldiers of the Israeli army (more than 22,000) and victims of terrorism (more than 1,600).
On Yom Ha'atzmaut there is a tradition to have a picnic and barbeque in the parks and forests. In the evening, people celebrate in the streets with songs and dances, and balconies are decorated with Israeli flags. The design of the Israeli Flag is a blue Star of David (H: Magen David) in the middle between two blue horizontal lines on a white background. The blue represents the color of the sky. The star represents a shield that protects King David. The white represents purity.
