“And it came to pass that in the middle of the night, on the night of November 29, 1948 BCE, and all the nations of the world declared the establishment of a Jewish State for the Jewish Nation in the Land of Israel. And every man, woman, child, infant and elder got up and went out into the streets in song and dance. And the entire land rejoiced and celebrated. And never was there such joy since the Exodus of Israel from Egypt.”
