I drew an El Al airplane in the sky with an Israel flag, that is flying with a numbers of Independence Anniversary. Israel is the Jewish homeland! It's where our religion started a super long time ago. All the important holy sites for Jews, like the Western Wall in Jerusalem, are located here. Even though lots of Jews live in other countries now, Israel is still a really meaningful place. It represents our ancient history and traditions being carried on. For Jews everywhere, Israel lets us feel connected to our roots. That's why it plays such an important role for the entire Jewish world!" Time flies, but Israel is still here and already 76 years old.
