More than 500 people gathered Thursday night in downtown Miami to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of Israel — a milestone for the Jewish state.
The holiday, “Yom Ha’atzmaut“ (Israeli Day of Independence) is tied to the Hebrew calendar and was celebrated at sundown Wednesday. Lior Haiat, Consul General of Israel to Florida and Puerto Rico, hosted the reception at the Alfred I. duPont Building, 169 E. Flagler St.
Israel was founded on May 14, 1948.
