Yom Ha'atzmaut

Yom Ha'atzmaut

Celebrating 66 years of independence and innovation.

Yom HaAtzmaut, Israeli Independence Day, marks the establishment of the modern state of Israel in 1948. It is observed on or near the 5th of Iyar in the Hebrew calendar, which usually falls in April. 

To celebrate AUJS has launched a campaign to highlight how this little dynamo of a country has helped change the world through innovation and inventions.

You may know Silicon Valley as the start-up capital of the world, but when you look at innovation acre-for-acre for person-for-person, no place is more innovative than Israel!
