Yom HaAtzma’ut 5771

Last year, Leora suggested that I post pictures of Flag Friday (the day we decorate our house and car in honor of Yom HaAtzma’ut).

And, so, here’s what TRLEOOB* looks like when it’s all bedecked in blue and white:

לאלתר לגאולה שלמה!

Happy Yom HaAtzma’ut to all!


*TRLEOOB=the real life equivalent of our blog


  1. Cool! You look like get so "into" it all. Enjoy the day (and any accompanying food treats as well).

    I don't quite recall suggesting that (doesn't mean I didn't), but then again, I'm always saying, show us the pics! :-)

  2. Thanks for posting the pictures. My sister just sent me a video of fireworks where she lives.
    Tomorrow I go to a parade at the school that my children attend.
    Happy Yom HaAtma'ut!

  3. Leora - but then again, I'm always saying, show us the pics! :-)
    LOL! That's basically what you said! :-)

    Laura - Sounds like fun! I hope you're having a wonderful Yom HaAtzma'ut!

  4. Lovely pictures. It is nice to see all these flags. Is this done throughout the country?

  5. Ilana-Davita - Thanks. Yes, most Israelis hang flags from their homes and cars for Yom HaAtzma'ut. It's a beautiful custom which really gets one into the holiday spirit!

  6. oops, your post reminds me that I was so busy this year, I didn't hang a single flag around the house.
