Today Israel turns 66!

Israel smelled like one big al ha aish (barbeque) today. We saw a fireworks show at night as did most of the country. IDF planes soared over most of Israel today in a show of unity. Parents tried their best not to buy our kids overpriced glow in the dark toys, sugary stuff and that stupid foam that kids spray on people that is somehow supposed to be fun.

What a stark contrast to the day before which with Yom Hazikaron where we remembered Israel’s fallen soldiers and victims of terror.

For a laugh go check out the very funny Benji Lovitt’s “66 More Things I Love About Israel” to honor Israel on her birthday today.
