A memorial prayer serv-
ice for those who fell in Is-
rael's wars took place
Saturday at the Cairo
synagogue.
Memorial Day events
began in Israel Saturday
with a ceremony at the
Western Wall. A memo-
rial candle was lighted in
the presence of President
Yitzhak Navon and Chief
of Staff Gen. Raphael
Eytan. On Monday, a
memorial siren sounded
throughout the country,
bringing traffic and work
to a two-minute halt.
Memorial services were
held at the same time at
military cemeteries.
Premier Menahem Begin
visited the graves of seven
freedom fighters who were
executed by the British
authorities during the
Mandate in Rosh Pinah in
Galilee. Later he visited the
military cemetery in Safed.
The central memorial
rally was held on Mt. Herzl
in Jerusalem.
In his greetings to Jewish
communities around the
world on the occasion of Is-
rael's 32nd anniversery, Is-
rael President Yitzhak
Navon said, in part:
"In this short period
four bitter wars have
been forced upon us —
the few against the many.
In this short period, the
Jewish component of our
population has grown
from 650,000 to 3,250,000.

A million pupils attend
school every day. Unique
achievements have been
recorded in agriculture,
in industry and in our
cultural life . . .
"If we look to our past, we
can observe that, when we
determine to do so, we are
capable of accomplishing
difficult and fateful tasks.
We have been privileged to
be the last generation in
servitude — and the first in
redemption.
"Let us be worthy of this
great privilege."
In his remarks on the oc-
casion, Israel Prime Minis-
ter Begin said, in part:
"In the turmoil that
surrounds us in the Mid-
dle East and its periphery
this is the only peaceful
corner from the day we
normalized our relations
with our southern
neighbor. Since then we
signed many agreements
which stem from the
peace treaty.
"We still have problems,
indeed we hope to solve
them. We will be faithful to
all the terms and all the
parts of the Camp David
agreements. There may be
difficulties ahead but we
started this great new chap-
ter in our life with peace.
We live by the faith that in
generations to come, our
people will live in this land,
together with their
neighbors in equality, in
human dignity, in freedom,

In New York, Israel's
32nd anniversary 'was cele-
brated with private parties,
official ceremonies, gather-
ings and receptions.
The Israeli Consulate in
New York organized Yom
Ha'Atzmaut parties for Is-
raelis in the five boroughs,
where glasses of wine were
raised in toasts to the
Jewish state.
In Washington, Israel's
32nd anniversary was
marked by the largest
turnout perhaps in his-
tory at the Israeli Em-
bassy Monday. Some 500
persons celebrated Yom
Ha'Atzmaut with cham-
pagne as guests of Israeli
Ambassador and Mrs.
Ephraim Evron.
Among those attending
were representatives of
most West European and
Latin American countries,
Egypt, Kenya and the Ivory
Coast. Special Middle East
Ambassador Sol Linowitz,
Assistant Secretary of State
for Near Eastern and South
Asian Affairs Harold Saun-
ders, and U.S. Ambassador
to Israel Samuel Lewis were
among those who attended.
In Paris, more than 2,000
guests, including three
French government mem-
bers, attended an Indepen-
dence Day reception given
by Israeli Ambassador Meir
Rosenne. The Egyptian
Ambassador did not attend.
