On April 13, more than 300 people gathered at the JCC to celebrate Israel@65.  The event started with a special Yom Hazikaron commemoration from the Louisville Beit Sefer Yachad. Then the fun of Yom Ha’atzmaut began. Mayor Greg Fisher headed up a Community Walk with Israel, part of a national walk.


After the walk, a shuk opened in the Family Park of the JCC selling Israeli memorabilia and Mediterranean food prepared by Shiraz. Israeli folk singers Dorit and Tzvika, a pair of folk musicians from our Partnership with Israel region, the Western Galilee, performed between two demonstrations of Krav Maga (Israeli self-defense). The Speed Art Museum led family activities and Jewish National Fund from Cincinnati participated.

Israel@65 Chairs Faina and Ariel Kronenberg were pleased with the event and grateful to all the volunteers who helped make it “a perfect day,” and to all those who turned out to enjoy it.
