Celebrating Israel at 70

Israel is incredible! Over the next few months, and in celebration of Israel's 70th, we will be highlighting facts about Israeli food, culture, geography, innovation, academics and more! For example, did you know that Microsoft has more employees in Israel than it does per capita anywhere else in the world? There are more than one million notes are left in the Kotel (Western Wall) each year, and they are cleaned out twice a year, before Passover and Rosh Hashanah. Israel has its own day-long festival of love, called Tu B’Av. With all that love, no wonder life expectancy in Israel is among the highest in the world (at 82 years). Love a good cup of joe? Coffee and cafés are so good in Israel that it’s the only country where Starbucks failed trying to break into the local market!

We are excited to feature the beauty, wonder, and power of Israel! Read on to learn more about Mobileye and Orcam. From Mobileye's impressive progress in computing technology (hello, autonomous car!) to Orcam's tiny cameras used to help the visually impaired, Israel's list of contributions to human innovation is extraordinary. Innovate on!
