Today is Yom Ha'Atzmaut
MC, in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, the Galilee and the Biblical Settlements, Israelis are celebrating Israel's 75th Birthday today.
They woke up this morning to a day filled with festivities that have been taking place throughout the country.
Since sunset last night, this day has been filled with concerts, street parties, barbecues, festive prayers at the Western Wall, and lots of flag waving throughout the country.
On this day, 75 years ago, Israel miraculously became an independent nation.
Despite many nations denying or questioning the legitimacy of this Jewish state, and despite constant challenges, Israel not only continues to exist, it's thriving!
What's more, its advances in technology, science and agriculture continue to be a major source of blessing to the world.
Israel is thousands of years old, but as a modern Nation 75.
