The theme for Israel’s 71st Independence Day celebration was Spirit – the overcoming life force of Israelis to face every obstacle, move on, and build a nation against all odds.

During the main ceremony in Jerusalem, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said that it is the Spirit that comes from the Bible that is in the people of Israel that has given this nation the ability to overcome every obstacle. He said that the stories and heritage of God’s word give’s the Jewish people their “spirit, strength and inspiration to build the nation of Israel.”
