To celebrate Israel’s 65th anniversary, ISRAEL21c invites you to watch our montage of the real Israel as seen through the eyes of a bunch of amazing photographers – amateur and professional.

Smiles and sunsets, babies and bakers, surfers and clergymen – they’re all part of the Israel we love, accompanied by the awesome song “Shine” by Israel-born Rosi Golan. Click on the video to view.

Happy birthday, Israel!
