Celebrating Modern Israel’s Independence

The creation of the State of Israel in 1948 was truly a miracle. But how does a nation starting with almost nothing become prosperous? Israel faced some serious growing pains and worked hard to provide for its immigrant citizens. And the story behind its journey is fascinating!

Chris teaches a captivating history lesson on the growth of the State of Israel on this week’s show. He discusses the fledgling nation’s refugee, housing, and economic crises with little-known details that show God’s handiwork in practically providing for Israel in its infancy. As you learn about Golda windows, couscous, reparations, and more, you’ll see how God used extraordinary people and programs to develop the reborn nation that His Chosen People call home!

The Friends of Israel Today and Apples of Gold theme music was composed and performed by Jeremy Strong.
