In honor of Israel’s 70th Independence Day, the Culture and Sports Ministry is inviting the public to digitally sign the Declaration of Independence. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Reuven Rivlin, Culture and Sports Minister Miri Regev are among the over 24,000 other people who have already signed the document.
The Culture and Sports Ministry explained that the project was established so that all Israeli citizens could take part in one of the most important events in Israel’s history. All the signatures will be printed on a special edition of the declaration, which will be put on display at Independence Hall in Tel Aviv.
“I invite all the Israeli people to sign the document that symbolizes more than anything else the declaration of the state,” Regev said. “I’m calling on all the Knesset members to sign the document and take part in the history of the State of Israel. This is a great opportunity for the young generation to read the document and be amazed by the strength of the words written in the document that David Ben-Gurion read 70 years ago.”
