Hatikvah

 

As long as deep in the heart,

The soul of a Jew Yearns,

And towards the East

An eye looks to Zion.

 

Our hope is not yet lost,

The hope of two thousand years,

To be a free people in our land,

The land of Zion and Jerusalem.

 

Yom Ha’atzmaut (Hebrew: יום העצמאות‎ Yōm hā-ʿAṣmāʾūṯ   lit. “Independence Day”) is the national day of Israel, commemorating the Israeli Declaration of Independence in 1948. It is celebrated on 5th of Iyar according to the Hebrew calendar. Yom Ha’atzmaut is preceded by Yom Hazikaron, the Israeli Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terrorism Remembrance Day.
