The Expiration of the Mandate- On the eve of Sabbath, on May 15, 1948, the termination of the Mandate was completed. The exterimanation of the mandate allowed Israel to be free land and also allowed all Jewish immigrants into the state. The People's council was turned into the Provisional Council of the State, and Jewish state was to be called Israel.
