House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: April 18, 2019 01:45 PM
From: Representative Michael H. Schlossberg
To: All House members
Subject: Israel Independence Day
In the near future, I plan to introduce a resolution designating May 14 as Israel Independence Day in Pennsylvania. On May 14, 1948, David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, read Israel’s Declaration of Independence. Later that same day, President Truman issued a statement recognizing of Israel’s provisional government.

The Jewish people have endured a long history of invasion, oppression, dislocation, discrimination and genocide. Please join me in recognizing this important date in history and celebrating the Israeli sovereignty.

Introduced as HR279
