Israel is a country filled with many ups and downs. One of the major moments this year was the Giro d’Italia starting in Israel’s capital, Jerusalem!

Giro d’Italia and More

Giro d’Italia is a cycling Grand Tour race. And this past May 2018, it started in Israel. Not just anywhere in Israel, but in Jerusalem! That is definitely a momentous occasion for the Jewish state.

Other historic moments included Israel winning the Eurovision contest, getting major support for the U.S. at the United Nations because of Nikki Haley’s strength, America officially recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, and more.

Counting the Blessings

Naturally, not everything is going to be perfect. Over the year, there were also more rockets than there have been since 2014. Many other tragic and not so positive things have happened. But Israel has not let those moments hold them back. They stay strong. The Jewish people count their blessings. Even if there may only seem like a few in certain time periods, they will still make them shine.

What is in Store for 2019?

What will Israel surprise the world with in the coming year? We can surely expect great things from the Jewish state in 2019. Based on the direction they have been taking the last 70 years, Israel is only going to get better with the help of God! What will be Israel’s next big thing? An invention? New technology? A lifesaving medical procedure? Something that will improve daily lives? Maybe it will be one in each category! It wouldn’t be surprising…

Let’s wait and see!
