President Biden’s Yom Ha’atzmaut Message

April 26, 2023

Happy Israeli Independence Day – Yom Ha’atzmaut Sameach! 75 years ago today, Israel bravely declared itself an independent nation, and we are proud to stand with the people of Israel today — and every day — as they celebrate their independence.

No president has entered office with a longer record of support for the U.S.-Israel relationship than Joe Biden. President Biden has strongly supported Israel’s democracy, security and right to self-defense for decades since he was first elected to the Senate in 1972.

Also this week, Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries led a congressional delegation to Israel to commemorate Yom HaZikaron and further the U.S. commitment to a strong U.S.-Israel relationship. Democrats will always support Israel, and we are proud to have Democratic leaders who stand with Israel.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership.
