Israel celebrated 73 year of independence.
This was no small feat. 73 years ago, most people doubted that Israel would survive a single year - no less 73.
This past year was tough for everyone world over. But Israel seems to have emerged out of the dark tunnel called COVID.
In honor of Independence Day, for the first time in thirteen months, the city of Tel Aviv held large outdoor concerts for children. There was a limit of 650 children per concert and all the children were given a free COVID rapid test within an hour of the concert. The test gave results in 15 minutes. The test was developed by an Israeli bio tech company and results came back in fifteen minutes.
As required for all large gatherings, even outdoor gatherings, masks were worn.
Life is not yet back to the normal we used to live, but in Tel Aviv as in all of Israel, a new normal is developing. And life goes on.
