Israel Declares Independence, 1948

Updated: Dec 4, 2020

On This Day in Jewish History: May 14th, 1948



A historic & emotional day in Jewish history as David Ben Gurion, Israel's first prime minister and major player in pre-Israel Jewish return to the Land, declares independence of the first Jewish State in the Land of Israel in 2,000 years 🎉🇮🇱


Some of you may be a little confused: Wasn't Yom Ha'atzmaut (Day of Independence) celebrated 2 weeks ago? YES, it was indeed. BUT that's because in Israel, we celebrate this same day based on the Hebrew/Jewish calendar (5th of Iyar) when it occurred.


More on the significance and meaning behind the Jewish calendar compared to the Gregorian one in upcoming posts 😏


If you were to visit Tel Aviv today, you can check out this very spot on 16 Rothschild Blvd where DBG made history. . .
