Subject:  Yom Haatzmaut
Message:  I understand your reluctance to grant Yom Haatzmaut any significance, but what about Yom Yerushalayim. This commemorates our victory and capture of the mekomot ha-kedoshim.

By the way, many gedolim did regard Yom ha-Atzmaut as having significance. I heard from R. Zvi Pesah Frank's grandson that when it came to Yom Ha-Atzmaut Rav Frank did like Ben Gurion -- no Hallel and no tachanun
Reply:  It commemorates, yes, but why commemorate on a day designated by non-observant people, enemies of your closest and dearest friend (God)?!
