Independence Hall

by Touchpoint Israel

David Ben-Gurion officially declared the birth of the modern State of Israel when he read the Declaration of Independence in this room on May 14, 1948. The Eretz Israel Museum has ensured that the hall looks exactly the same as it did on that historic day. A portrait of Theodor Herzl, the man who fathered the movement to return the Jews to their homeland, hangs in a place of honor above the dais. Learn more about the history of Independence Hall here.
