70. celebration of Independence of Israel
Today we commemorate the Ghetto Uprising, but also the day of the Independence of Israel. This is very symbolic – said former ambassador of Israel to Poland, Szewach Weiss. Since yesterdays sundown till today evening continues the celebration of the Memorial Day for Israeli Fallen Soldiers and Victims of Terrorism, Jom ha-Zikkaron, which foregoes the Jom ha-Acmaut celebration – 70. anniversary of Israeli Independence. The state proclaimed its sovereignty on the 14th of May 1948, but because of the differences between calendars, the Jewish feasts are movable. One of the most important parts of the celebration is the speech given by the states head and military parade. That day ends by the rewarding by the Israel award – an honorable mention for someone with a highly unique contribution in science development of the country.
