The central London venue will be announced to ticket holders before the event.
“I’m so excited to be coming back to London to enjoy Yom Ha’atzmaut with all of you! England holds so many amazing memories for me, since it’s where I won the Eurovision contest in 1998. I can’t wait to bring some of that Eurovision magic for this unique celebration of Israel’s birthday!”
