Israeli independence day is May 14th. The 60th celebration on Israel being a country is tomorrow. It's at the "other" synagogue, but I'm going. I feel such a stronger connection to the land than I used to, and I'm excited to eat falafel and Israeli salad (there, they just call it "salad" hehee). They are going to have a klezmer band and some other things too.

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.
