Yom Ha Atzmaut in Jerusalem\'s Zion Square

Last night at Kikar Tzion (Zion Square) in Jerusalem, a huge but surprisingly well behaved crowd was kept entertained with a Yom Ha’Atzmaut triple whammy: Music, lasers and fireworks! It was a mad house of course but that didn’t stop people with strollers and small children from attending as well as the requisite drunk women draped in flags. Fun times, fun times. Look for more Jerusalem at 60 coverage on Jerusalemite, the Jerusalem Post and every other major Jewish publication…

Here’s video from the show:

  • great work CK, happy 60th Israel, I still love you after all these years.

  • FYI, the two kids in the first picture are Paula and Tito, madrichim (and former chanichim of mine) from the Argentinean Zionist youth-group heChalutz Lamerchav (www.hejalutzlamerjav.com.ar) that are nowadays in a year-long-program here in Israel… just to show some diasporic Zionism…
