It gives me great pleasure to send my best wishes to everyone celebrating Israel’s Independence Day – Yom Ha’atzmaut.

In 2018, Israel celebrates 70 years of Independence, not only as a thriving and vibrant democratic country, but also a global leader in growth and research.

Celebrated on the fifth day of the month of Iyar in the Hebrew calendar, Yom Ha’atzmaut celebrates the formal establishment of the State of Israel.

A nation which rose from the ashes of humanity’s darkest days, Israel has become a nation investing in the most valuable and powerful engine for growth there is: its citizens. In Israel, people just don’t spruik the benefits of research, they don’t just talk, they teach a culture of discovery.

For Jewish-Australians there is so much to celebrate. It was Jewish-Australians, who helped establish charities, underwrote scholarships, funded university departments, and supported the study of the past from which all understanding in the present and future must flow.

The Jewish-Australian community continues to play a leading role in public life.

As the torch is lit on the evening of Yom Ha’atzmaut, let us all be inspired towards hope and prosperity for the years to come and I wish you all a very happy and joyous celebration.

Bill Shorten

Leader of the Opposition
