This year’s Yom Ha’atzmaut celebrations will be different than those in the previous 71 years, but you can count on Israelis to create new ways to honor their nation.
While there won’t be massive concerts, well-attended state ceremonies, or giant barbecues in the parks on Yom Ha’atzmaut this year, Israelis will join together to celebrate Independence Day, at least virtually.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, a national curfew and tightened restrictions will keep Israelis at home, but the nation will nonetheless cheer 72 years of the Jewish state.
Take a walk down memory lane in this video, and click here to learn how YOU can join the virtual celebration.
URGENT: Help Israelis Fight Coronavirus!
Donate to the Israel Coronavirus Relief Fund. The deadly virus is surging in Israel. While all Israelis are affected, the poor, elderly and seriously ill are highly at risk.
Israeli soldiers, security officers and medical care providers are in danger. At this time, Coronavirus poses a greater threat to Israel than acts of terror.
Israelis need your help. Food and medical supplies can be scarce. The country is in near total lockdown. People are in panic. Funds will be distributed where needed most. Help Israel today!
