Sixty years ago, on the Friday afternoon of May 14th 1948, David Ben Gurion read out the scroll of the Establishment of the State of Israel. As you can read here, the reading took 16 minutes. The establishment of this state certainly was a valid reason to recite the Shehecheyanu blessing: " Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe, Who has kept us in life, sustained us, and brought us to this moment."
