BROADCASTING LIVE FROM ISRAEL!

Israel's Independence Day is celebrated on the fifth day of the month of Iyar, which is the Hebrew date of the formal establishment of the State of Israel, when members of the government read and signed a Declaration of Independence in Tel Aviv. The original date corresponded to May 14, 1948.

Yom Ha'atzmaut in Israel is always preceded by Yom Hazikaron, Israel's Memorial Day for the fallen soldiers. The message of linking these two days is clear: Israelis owe their independence--the very existence of the state--to the soldiers who sacrificed their lives for it.

We will also be touring Ammunition Hill and begin the March of the Living to the Kotel - "The Western Wall".
