Come celebrate Israel Independence Day!
Wednesday, May 8, 5:00 – 8:30 pm at the MJCC
Make your way through Israel and join us as we showcase several cities and regions throughout Israel using interactive activities such as archaeological digs–shifting through the sand to find ancient artifacts at Masada or decorating mystical Hamsa’s in Tzfat–there’s something fun for the whole family! Other activities you will find are climbing to the top of Masada on our rock wall, learn how to Israeli folk dance, bounce the day away at King Solomon’s Temple bounce house edition, face painting, Henna artwork, take your picture in Israel at the photo booth, and so much more. This year, we are excited to be laughing our tuchus’ off with Israeli comedian, Gali Kroup. There’s fun for everyone! Another great addition to the party is our Israeli Karaoke!
Vote on your favorite photo in the exhibit “Israel from the Eyes of the Community: A Community Art Display.” Photos are on display in the MJCC Art Gallery April 29- May 31. Community members will vote on their favorite photo from April 29-May 8. Winners will be announced at 8 pm during the Yom Ha’atzmaut Celebration.
