Yom Ha'Atzmaut
(Israel Independence Day)
The Golani Brigade - Jewish Cavalry Downtown Haifa - 1948

Israel is the very embodiment of Jewish continuity: It is the only nation on earth that inhabits the same land, bears the same name,
 speaks the same language, and worships the same G_d that it did 3,000 years ago. You dig the soil and you find pottery from Davidic times, coins
from Bar Kokhba, and 2,000-year-old scrolls written in a script remarkably like the one that today advertises ice cream at the corner candy store.

- Charles Krauthammer - The Weekly Standard, May 11, 1998

BONUS RECIPES (Sorry, not theme-related):

Slow Cooker Baked Beans - "Slow Cooker Baked Beans are great for so many reasons. They make a great side, especially at barbecues. Just put everything into the slow cooker and let it do its thing. Because these baked beans are made in the slow cooker, your oven and stove-top are available for other dishes. You know, for the corn casserole that you're going to make for your barbecue. If you want to make these beans even more filling, feel free to add ground beef. You'll practically have a whole meal in one dish!"

Sunday Chicken Supper - "Sunday is always a day for comforting meals that take minimal effort. This Sunday Chicken Supper is a slow cooker recipe that's super easy to prepare and makes a complete meal in one! What's even better, you can prepare the meal in the morning and let it cook all day. Just like that, you'll have a complete one-pot meal ready to feed the whole family. With chicken, bacon, potatoes, vegetables, and seasonings, it's hearty and delicious."

Lazy Lemon Spoon Cake - "Lazy Lemon Spoon Cake is wonderful recipe to make any time of year, but especially when you're looking for a simple lemon cake recipe that is bursting with fresh, citrus flavor. This homemade lemon cake recipe is truly a treat. This cake mix cake is 'baked' in the slow cooker and uses lemon juice and zest, butter, eggs and water. All you do is dump your ingredients together, stir and bake. What could be easier? This is a great recipe to make for an after-Easter brunch or dinner. Try it out today!"


From - 05/11/16:

At the end of the college year, a star football player celebrated by attending a late night campus party. Soon after arriving, he became captivated by a beautiful coed and eased into a conversation with her by asking if she had met many "potential dates" at the party.

"Oh, I'm much more attracted to the strong academic types than to the party animals," she said. "What's your G.P.A.?"

Grinning from ear to ear, the jock boasted, "I get about 25 in the city and 40 on the highway."

HaTikva (The Hope)

The National Anthem of Israel

Written by Naftali Herz Imber (1856-1909)
Melody arranged by Samuel Cohen, an immigrant to Israel from Moldavia, from a musical theme
in Smetana's "Moldau", which is partly based on a Scandinavian folk song

Transliteration התקוה
Kol od balevav p'nimah כל עוד בלבב פנימה
Nefesh Yehudi homiyah נפש יהודי הומיה
Ulfa'atey mizrach kadimah ולפאתי מזרח קדימה
Ayin l'tzion tzofiyah עין לציון צופיה
Od lo avdah tikvatenu עוד לא אבדה תקותנו
Hatikvah bat shnot alpayim התקוה בת שנות אלפים
L'hiyot am chofshi b'artzenu להיות עם חופשי בארצנו
Eretz Tzion v'Yerushalayim ארץ ציון וירושלים
  As long as deep in the heart,

The soul of a Jew yearns,

And forward to the East

To Zion, an eye looks

Our hope will not be lost,

The hope of two thousand years,

To be a free nation in our land,

The land of Zion and Jerusalem.
