“Independence Hall” on Rothschild Boulevard in Tel-Aviv, is the place where on Friday, May 14th 1948 the state of Israel was declared. The building was an art museum, and it was chosen for being a relatively secured public building.
The declaration took 22 minutes, and then everybody rushed home before shabbath, and before the Arab attack. Indeed the next morning Egyptian planes bombed Tel-Aviv, and the second and longer and bitter phase of the war of Independence began.
