Israel Independence Day

Known as Yom Ha’atzmaut in Hebrew, this day is a celebration of the declaration of the independence of the State of Israel in 1948. That event took place on May 14, according to the Gregorian Calendar, but on the Hebrew Calendar, which varies in relation to the Gregorian, it takes place on the 5th of Iyar, which goes from sundown on May 5 through May 6 in 2014. In 2015 it will fall on April 23.
