Israel’s Independence

In honor of Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day, I have uploaded two of my favorite photos. Both of these were taken this past January when I was in Israel leading a birthright israel group from University of Michigan Hillel and Harvard Hillel.

Top photo is from Independence Hall in Tel Aviv where Israel’s independence was declared by David Ben-Gurion in 1948. The bottom photo is of sunset over Jerusalem (Yerushalayim shel zahav) taken from the balcony outside my hotel room at the Regency Hotel on Mt. Scopus.
