Jewish Federation of Central Alabama (JFCA) invites you to join us for ISRAELfest70, an annual community-wide celebration, which will showcase Israeli life, culture & spirit. All are invited: Whether you carry an Israeli passport or you carry Israel in your heart and mind, we hope you will join us to celebrate the Jewish State.
Israeli Independence Day, known as Yom Ha’atzmaut in Hebrew, commemorates the public reading of the Israeli Declaration of Independence by the first Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, and its approval by Israeli leaders 70 years ago. In Central Alabama and communities across the United States, we celebrate Israel’s independence each year as a way to support one of our country’s strongest allies and to honor freedom and democracy throughout the world.
The event will feature: a variety of traditional Israeli food catered by Eli's Jerusalem Grill, inspiring words from special guest speakers, a raffle, an 8-foot replica of Jerusalem’s Western Wall, bouncy house and dancing for the kids, merchandise, exciting door prizes, and much more! At the center of the celebration is live entertainment by Dahlia Road featuring Israeli and Jewish music and a special program by Jewish storyteller Noa Baum.
