How Israelis celebrate their Independence Day (Yom Ha’azma’ut)

B”H
Airshows, free access to various museums and lots of barbecue. This way Israelis love to celebrate their Independence Day.

The airshow in Jerusalem is never as great as at the beach in Tel Aviv. Here is the picture I took from my balcony when the planes were passing. It was a very brief show and there was not much to see.
Nevertheless, I found a video showing you the atmosphere of yesterday’s 69th Independence Day. The video is in Hebrew but there is no need to understand the language because the pictures alone express everything. 🙂
I suppose that the Neturei Karta had another Israeli flag burning ceremony in Mea Shearim / Jerusalem. They do this every Independence Day eve. However, Israelis are not interested because we have a day off from work and we are glad to have our own country. Although it may not be a perfect country but, at least, something.
