Our Precious Israel

Today is Yom HaZikaron , Israel's memorial day, when we remember the 22,684 fallen soldiers, who gave their livies defending our precious country.

Tonight we usher in Yom Ha'atzmaut, our Independence Day, celebrating 62 years of the modern State of Israel. A land where Jews everywhere in the world can call home.

Aish HaTorah put out an excellent video that says it all...........

Israel: Defying the Odds.

Our Flag

Our flag, our flag...

Oh, what a sight!

To see you proudly

dance in the wind.

Your blue and white colours

so very distinctive,

makes us grateful

we live in this wonderful land.

Our history is short,
many wars we have known.

The Hand of Hashem
guides our brave young soldiers,

to diligently defend your honour.

Oh flag, oh flag
What a proud and beautiful sight!

Until next time

Previous comments have said what I would have said. I will just add that may it be G-d's Will that there is no need to sacrifice any more lives and that we are able to live in the Land in Peace in the very near future.
