Reuven Rivlin

During the most difficult time, Israelis have always maintained a feeling of “togetherness,” the president said, urging citizens to help strengthen the economy amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

This year, Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day, will be celebrated differently than ever before in the 72-year history of the modern Jewish State.

In his greeting to the citizens of Israel on the occasion, President Reuven Rivlin recalls the events surrounding the establishment of the State of Israel, when he was a mere child.

Over the years, in the more difficult times, Israelis always shared a feeling of “togetherness.” Amid the coronavirus, he adds, Israelis will continue to celebrate the joyous occasion, despite the challenges.

He also urges the population to buy “local” in order to strengthen the Israeli economy.
