Many participants came from here and abroad, for all to see as they marched and sang to their cultural tunes. The theme for their 55th anniversary was “Only in Israel.” Marking the outstanding accomplishments that have come out of the Israeli people, some of which stated as follow: “Where barren deserts are transformed into flourishing fields, where diverse cultures produce a fusion of global cuisine, where pioneers build new frontiers in science and technology. Where water can be produced from thin air, where those with incurable diseases are cured. where in order to be a realist, you must believe in miracles”.
The Nation of Israel has not only defied the stark aggression of their rivals but have truly withstood great hardship such as the Holocaust as never-ending wars still threaten them. In spite, they have overcome such challenges and risen, while creating an astronomical mark as a microcosm world impact.
