Happy 63rd, Israel!


With sunset the solemn day of Yom Hazikaron, the Israeli Memorial Day has ended, and the day of celebration began! Happy Birthday, Israel!

Israel’s population stands at 7,746,000. Since last year, over twice as many people decided to make Israel their home as those who decided to leave. Among 24,500 new arrivals are my sister Emily, cousin Patricia, her husband Gabe and their two children. Among the many babies born in Israel were three nephews and great-nephews and a niece, and my sister. 🙂

We celebrate with shaving foam, lots of flags, lots of music, a barbeque and a special cake with 63 candles (firehazard, of course).
