Israel in the Gardens is only a few weeks away and we could not be more excited for this year’s Israel Celebration. T-SLAM will headline the show which is sure to be a hit for the whole family.
Make sure to bring a blanket, some sunscreen, purchase some beautiful Israeli arts & crafts, play in the children area, or simply grab a falafel and explore the many booths at the day-long festival.
The Jews Got Talent Finals will be held on the main stage. Don’t miss out on hearing some great talent and see who wins the grand prize.
Make sure to stop by the Israel Center booth for a chance to win some fun prizes.
But the Party does not stop there: After the festival make sure to head down the street to Manor West for the Tzvata After Party and continue to groove, Israel style, into the night.
Can’t wait until June 6th to celebrate all that is Israel?
This Saturday come out to support a great cause at the Friends of The Israel Defence Forces Young Leadership Kickoff Party which will benefit their Lone Soldier Program. This is bound to be a great party.
