“We were like dreamers”: 74 years of the State of Israel

Dear Friends and Partners,

Israel’s Independence Day, Yom HaAtzmaut, is a day of celebration – although every day, for 74 years now, we’re thankful for the Jewish and independent State of Israel.

The three weeks between Pesach and Yom HaAtzmaut are days of remembrance, renewal and national rebirth. These three weeks thread together the Exodus from Egypt, Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) and Yom HaZikaron (Memorial Day for Israel’s Fallen), which gives way seamlessly to the celebration of our national independence.

Despite the challenges, despite the hardships we face, we recognize the simple truth: Israel is our one and only homeland.

Best wishes for a Happy Yom HaAtzmaut from the entire Regavim Team – and thank you for your continued partnership.
