73rd Independence Day of Israel

European Jewish Parliament Chairman Vadim Rabinovich extended congratulations to all Jewish people on Independence Day: “I sincerely congratulate all Jewish people and the State of Israel on Independence Day, and wish peace, security and prosperity,” he said.

Throughout their long history, the yearning to return to the Land of Israel has been the focus of Jewish life. Independence Day is a celebration of the renewal of the Jewish state in the land where the Jewish people began to develop its distinctive religion and culture some 4,000 years ago.​​​​​​​​​​

On this day, the entire nation remembers its debt and expresses eternal gratitude to its sons and daughters who gave their lives for the achievement of the country’s independence and its continued existence.
