(Belated) Happy Yom Ha'atzamaut!

Yesterday was, as we know, Yom Ha'atzmaut, Israeli Independence Day. Israel is now 76 (and a couple of days). I wanted to make this thread yesterday, but did not find the time.
Anyway, I'm sure that I wasn't alone in celebrating with a heavy heart, what with the hostages and the war and everything else that's going on in Israel and around the world, but I think that celebration is still very much in order, and we should certainly give thanks for the existence of the State of Israel and its many accomplishments, despite - or because - of its rich and turbulent (albeit fairly short) history.

So, to many happy returns, to a safe return of the hostages and to true victory in the war and around the region (as needed) B"H!
