Yom Haatzmaut, or Israel's Independence Day (and sometimes written as Yom Ha'atzmaut), is a holiday celebrated each year in Israel according to the Jewish calendar on the Hebrew date of the 5th of Iyar. While Independence Day is observed as a national holiday in Israel, many communities (both Jewish and non-Jewish) commemorate the day that Israel's first prime minister David Ben-Gurion declared the independence of Israel in 1948. Like many holidays observed by the Jewish people, Yom Haatzmaut 2022 will begin at sundown on Wednesday, May 4, but many celebrations will be held during the day on Thursday May, 5 as the State of Israel marks 74 years since Ben-Gurion read the newborn state's Declaration of Independence.

In Israel, the Air Force puts on magnificent air shows, families and friends get together for barbecues and picnics, celebrations occur in streets and parks across the country, and many local cities and towns hold their own ceremony that commemorates that fateful day in May 1948.

Around the world, many Israeli consulates, as well as local Jewish community centers, schools, and synagogues, host parties, barbecues, special prayers, a ceremony, and other celebrations, although some observe the holiday on May 15, the secular date of Israel's independence in 1948. If you're outside of Israel, you can still show off your love for the Jewish state in style on Yom Haatzmaut 2022 by shopping our wide selection of clothing, accessories, home décor, jewelry, and other gifts that are perfect on Yom Haatzmaut and year-round!
