You can still watch the 235th Independence Day celebration live online on June 30, brought to you by the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv and its corporate sponsors:
The embassy’s most recent FB contest is called 2011 July 4th America Challenge! Participants must complete the sentence AMERICA IS …. and get a chance to win tickets to the Independence Day party at the Ambassador’s Residence.
On June 22, the embassy announced in FB that it received “well over 300 creative, funny, emotional, and thoughtful entries telling us what AMERICA IS…” and is now sifting through the entries on who will get the tickets.
