Happy Birthday, Israel!

As we all know, this month is Israel’s 60th birthday. I’d like to briefly examine what this means, to reach the big 6-0. A 60-year old man or woman would naturally encounter certain physical effects of aging. Perhaps this change would include a slight decrease in terms of strength, agility, physical stamina, and more. Additionally, a person of 60 could find himself or herself facing wrinkles, gray hair or hair loss, and slight problems hearing or seeing.
