With hostages still in Gaza, with a bloody war raging on, with death, destruction, and fear all around us, it feels impossible to celebrate, to sing, and to dance this Yom Ha'atzmaut.

But the story of the Jewish people, and the story of the Zionist dream is to keep fighting. To keep dreaming of something better, to keep working toward the future we want to see.

It is when we struggle the most that we find the most hope. Your $76 gift on Israel's 76th year of independence means we're still fighting together, dreaming together, struggling together, and finding hope together.
