Tuesday was Israeli Independence Day (Yom Ha’Atzmaut in Hebrew). Israel became a country in 1948, so on Tuesday we celebrated its 66th birthday. The kids celebrated at school and in the evening we went to the community celebration at the Jewish Community Center.
There was dancing – they did great, and even added an Israeli dance to the beginning of their regular routine.
We took a fun family photo:
Then there was cake. And I almost ate some, before Dave reminded me about my diet.
A bit more fun, and then it was time to call it a night!
Happy Birthday Israel!
