Get Your “Passport” and ”Tour” Israel for Yom Ha’atzmaut

Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel Independence Day, is cause for celebration, so come join the fun at the Jewish Community Center on Wednesday, May 7, from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

The JCC will mark Israel’s 66th birthday. Pick up your passport and enjoy a variety of activities as you travel around Israel without leaving the JCC and experience Israeli culture. Activities include visiting the Kotel (the Western Wall), sampling Tel Aviv’s nightlife, learning how to be a scientist in Rehovot, helping JNF (the Jewish National Fund) plant trees, relaxing in the Dead Sea, digging for fossils at the Tel Meggido dig site, learning Israeli folk dancing and more.

“There will be Israeli music, outdoor games, crafts, a camel to pet and a popsicle truck,” said Co-Chair Brett Friedman. “Bring your kids and your appetite –it’s going to be a fun night.”

Dinner from the Burning Bush features falafel, humus salads and more as well as pizza, fries and a veggie tray for children – $9 for adults and $6 for children.

Orit Goldstein and Brett Friedman are chairs of the 2014 Yom Ha’atzmaut celebration.
