Oregonians are invited to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the modern state of Israel beginning at 5 pm, April 18.

Make your way through Israel and join PJ Library partner organizations as they 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 Hamsas in Tzfat. There’s something fun for the whole family! Other activities include climbing to the top of Masada on the MJCC’s rock wall or bouncing in King Solomon’s Temple bounce house. Children can also enjoy face painting and henna artwork.

Playing the hottest hits from Israel will be Israeli DJ, DJ Guy. Adults can grab a drink and dance the night away. Delicious cuisine will include Israeli salads, pita, falafel and other Israeli-inspired treats.

As you head into the celebration, stop by the “Israel from the Eyes of the Community: A Community Art Display” in the MJCC Gallery and vote for your favorite photo. Winning photos will be announced at 8 pm. The photos of Israel by local photographers will be on display April 10-30.
