Israel's 72nd Independence Day

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.

HELP ISRAELIS BATTLE CORONA!

Donate to the Corona Emergency Relief Fund. Coronavirus has taken a huge toll on the people of Israel. The poor, elderly and ill are most vulnerable.

Israeli soldiers, security officers and medical care providers operate under great danger and risk to life.

Over 1 million Israelis are out of work. Many cannot make ends meet. We provide financial aid, food, medical supplies and more. Funds are distributed where needed most. The time to act is now!

United with Israel extends a special note of appreciation to the Genesis Prize for their generous support.
