Party’s just getting started forIsrael’s diamond anniversary


A two-day celebration is hardly enough when cheering the 75th anniversary of the modern Jewish state. While there were blowout affairs last Wednesday (on 5 Iyar, Israel’s Hebrew-calendar birthday) and there will be more on May 15 (the secular-calendar date), festive events are planned throughout the year. Next up: The Celebrate Israel Parade on Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue, on Sunday, June 4.
