Last week, Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israeli Independence Day, was celebrated at Drexel University! Yom Ha’atzmaut is a day of celebration, music, and especially Israeli food. Dragons for Israel at Drexel organized their annual event for students to come enjoy and celebrate Israel’s 66th birthday. Everyone enjoyed themselves as they listened to middle eastern music and ate falafel.
Dragons for Israel also offered tie-dying, and many students celebrated Independence Day by tie- dying their shirts blue and white.
There were plenty of new faces at the event, and many students were interested in learning more about what Dragons for Israel had to offer. While the weather at Drexel may not have been as hot as it was in Israel that day, everyone at the event had a great time celebrating another year of Israel’s independence. Check out their event last May!
