Happy Israel Independence Day

May, 12, 2016

Israel’s Independence Day is celebrated on the fifth day of the month of Iyar, which is the Hebrew date of the formal establishment of the State of Israel, when members of the “provisional government” read and signed a Declaration of Independence in Tel Aviv. The original date corresponded to May 14, 1948. In 2016, it falls on May 12.

Most of the Jewish communities in the Western world have incorporated this modern holiday into their calendars, but some North American Jewish communities hold the public celebrations on a following Sunday in order to attract more participation. In the State of Israel it is a formal holiday, so almost everyone has the day off.

But I’m sure to some people that wish is divisive or a micro-aggression. Unfortunately, Israel’s Independence Day is a day of hatred for many people. Happy birthday Israel.

    Bud is renaming Bud “America” until the election.
    For years I only drank Pabst Blue Ribbon and then Busch. And well… before then, Falstaff, Jax, and Dixie.
    See how faithful I am. 🙂
    Tried Miller Lite once. I think I’d like Israe-Lite though. Maybe heavy. Yes, Happy Birthday.
