Get ready for the best 66th birthday party you’ve ever been to! From May 1 to May 18, Israel Independence Day BKLYN will be hosting events all across Brooklyn to celebrate Yom Ha’Atzmaut, the 66th anniversary of Israel’s Independence. More than a dozen Jewish organizations are working together, in collaboration with and funded by UJA-Federation of New York, to make this an unforgettable week.
Can’t-miss events during Israel Independence Day BKLYN include:
- The Idan Raichel Project Live in Concert: This ensemble, formed by keyboardist, producer and composer Idan Raichel, has been called a “multi-ethnic tour de force” by Billboard magazine. Raichel was recently voted Israel’s musician of the decade.
- The Schizophrenic Zionist: A one-man interactive theater piece by comedian Joel Chasnoff that addresses the question: “What does it mean to be Zionist in the modern world?”
- Celebrate Israel: Events include a family carnival and BBQ at the Kings Bay Y at Windsor Terrace, a bonfire at the Kings Bay Y at North Williamsburg, and a day-long family party at the Park Slope Jewish Center.
