I cried when I heard Ben Gurion announce the independence of Israel, and hearing the story, and standing in the spot where they stood... I am really really very attached to Israel now and can't wait to celebrate.
I hope it turns out well and that our synagogue has a god showing. it makes me pretty upset that they are starting the celebration right in the middle of our Sunday School, especially since it's a joint-affair and just happens to be held there. You think they'd care.
