Israeli Independence Day Eve in Ofra

Last night we went to the Ofra Yom HaAtzma'ut Festivities, because our eldest grandchild was performing with the other kindergarten kids.

Ofra, the "mother of all yishuvim in the Shomron," has a very well-deserved reputation as a super-efficient, well organized place, and last night's show was excellent and not too long.

Here are a few pictures. No, our granddaughter isn't in any of them.

Great photos. Love that top one, with the action of the flags and the smiling girls.

Thanks Leora, I was also very pleasantly surprised when I saw that picture.
Between the zoom and the flash lag, I had no idea what would come out.

Great pictures! It looks like a really fun time.

Little question--I thought Independence Day was May 14? Was it switched or am I confusing it with another holiday?

Thanks, Keli,
All Jewish Holidays and fasts are celebrated according to the Jewish Calendar. Israeli Independence Day is the 5th of Iyyar. It can fall any time from late April to mid-May.
