*Yom Ha'atzma'ut ha-60 Sameach!

I have not posted for a while because many things were happening. First of all, Pesach knocked me for a loop (-my mother used to say that; where did that expression come from and what the heck does it mean?!) Finally having recovered from Pesach (it took the two of us three days to convert back to chametz--you Yidden know what I mean), I had intended to post over this past weekend, but we had a rather difficult one: I had to take my husband to the E.R. on Shabbat, because of an infected facial cyst which began spreading. We left motzai Shabbat with an IV in place, and had to return to the E.R. twice on Sunday (still with the IV) and once Monday morning. I returned to work exhausted after staying with my husband in the hospital all morning, and then driving him back home.
My great plans of blogging about the history and connection of the Jewish People to the Land of Israel, and of the founding of the State, and the miraculous circumstances surrounding Israel's victory in the June, 1967 so-called Six-Day War, didn't come to fruition--after Pesach, my job and this weekend I just don't have the energy for it.

Instead, I posted a few short videos to commemorate Israel's 60th Birthday which takes place on the 5th day of the month of Iyar, corresponding this year to May 10th on the secular calendar. Because that day is Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath, Israel will be celebrating it on Thursday (as well as our city here in the States, with our local celebrations).
With all it's flaws, Israel is the only homeland for the Jewish People, and I strongly believe that, for the rest of the world, Israel is the proverbial "canary in the coal mine."
As people better than I have said: "As it goes for Israel, so will it go for the World."
*Happy 60th Independence Day Israel!
