In the United States, Many American Jewish remembers Israel's Independence Day, also known as Yom Ha'Atzmaut (or Yom HaAtzmaut). Israel declared independence on May 14th, 1948. Shortly before, the British mandate of Palestine was to end.
According to the Jewish calendar, the fifth day of Iyar month does not fall on a Sunday. If this date falls on Friday or Saturday, then Yom Haazmut is observed on the third or fourth day of the month. If it falls on a Monday, Yom Haazmut is celebrated on the sixth day of Iyar.
