Re-enacting the Declaration of Independence

On the occasion of Israel’s 70th anniversary celebrations, the World Zionist Organization and the Ministry for Jerusalem and Heritage re-enacted the declaration of independence ceremony that took place on May 14, 1948 in Tel Aviv.

This was a flagship project of the Ministry for Jerusalem and Heritage and WZO to mark the 70th anniversary.

As part of the joint project with the Ministry for Heritage the Zionist Council in Israel also organized mass celebrations on Rothschild Street in Tel Aviv on Yom HaAtzmaut. The entire street was closed, decorated with flags and giant screens and stages were erected.
