Israel celebrates today its 61st Independence Day!
Watch this footage: this is a special version of our national anthem Hatikvha. This version of HaTikvah is a commercial of Israeli airline El Al, made for Israel's 60 Independence Day. Hatikvah, which literally means Hope reflects the eternal longing of Diaspora Jews to live in the land of Israel. Since the Star of David decorates our national flag, I've decided to bring you these unique Shabbat Candlesticks by Israeli Judaica designer, Yair Emanuel, who lives and works in Jerusalem, Israel. The colorful Shabbat candleticks are shaped as the Star of David and would make a great gift for Jewish occasions.
