Mazal Tov to Israel on its 68th Bday

Just wanted to share this adorable photo sent to me by a lone soldier center in Jerusalem (check out Chayal el Chayal here).

I gave the center some hats to distribute right before Yom haAtzma'ut (Israel Independence Day) because I think it's an appropriate time to show our appreciation to the folks in green who help keep us safe all year round. They were hamming it up a bit because the weather's been quite warm lately, but they assured me that they will indeed wear those hats this year, and with pleasure. And it's really nice for lone soldiers to know that there are people all over the world who care about them.

Thanks again, all you hat knitters, for making this happen!
