Learn a new Hebrew word in time for Yom HaAtzmaut – מטס


Every year, on Israel’s Independence Day, we are treated to a country-wide fly-past by the Israel Air Force (IAF)

In 2020, the fly-past honored the hard work and dedicated services of Israel medical fraternity during the Covid-19 Coronavirus crisis. 

This year, as things settle back to normal, the fly-past returns to its usual format and commences at around 8:45am on Yom HaAtzmaut and  aeroplanes will fly over numerous cities and towns across the country.

The Hebrew word for ‘fly-past’ is מטס – MATAS.  In English it also refers to a flyby, flyover or aerial demonstration
