 The sudden switch from Remembrance Day to Independence Day is very unsettling for many of us, and rightly so. Sometimes we’re in such a hurry to get to our barbecue that we forget to take a moment to remember all the people who lost their lives fighting for Israel’s existence.

And so, this Independence Day, I recommend visiting one of the many heritage sites that are spread around the country. Hiking lovers will be happy to know that there are many amazing trails with connections to this special day. Here are a few of my favorites.
