Yom Ha'atzmaut - Israel Independence Day - starts tonight with ceremonies throughout Israel to mark its 69th year of independence. The festive feeling has been building all week, with displays of flags in stores everywhere and flags mounted on side windows of many cars.
Schools are producing Yom Ha'atzmaut programs and plays depicting the founding of the nation, with parents and grandparents encouraged to participate in the festivities.
A good example is the program presented last Thursday in Jerusalem at the Yehuda Halevy School, a public religious elementary school serving the German Colony, Baka and Old Katamon neighborhoods.
Here is an excerpt from the production, led by the sixth grade graduating class. Enjoy!
