israel fest


The Simon Family JCC will celebrate it’s biggest outdoor community event of the year on June 5, 2016!

Come to the JCC for a day of fun with the whole family. From Israeli cuisine to live Israeli entertainment, from activities of all sorts to the marketplace of vendors, the Simon Family JCC will be moving and grooving with all things Israeli at our annual festival celebrating Yom Ha’Aztmaut.

The JCC’s Israel Fests of the past are remembered for delicious food, and this year promises scrumptious edibles once more. Food vendors will sell Israeli and Jewish cuisine as well as fruit smoothies, cotton candy, hot dogs and fries. As they did last year, all area synagogues and Beth Sholom Village will be vendors. Exciting entrees included traditional Israeli turkey shwarma, stuffed grape leaves, falafel, hummus, poached salmon and more.

Please enjoy these pictures from last year’s program.
