On Friday May 14, 1948 (the day in which the British Mandate over the land which would be called Israel again that same day expired) the Declaration of the Establishment of the State of Israel was signed by members of the National Council gathered at the Tel Aviv Museum, representing the Jewish community in the country and the Zionist movement abroad. It went into effect at midnight, Tel Aviv time. In the past time much has happened and has been developed in all kinds of areas. The following short movie shows some impressions and facts, with Israeli music. Go to Israel 60 years. Enjoy. And congratulations with Israel’s 60th birthday.
