Join us as we celebrate Israel at 75 with special events throughout the month of May! There are many reasons to celebrate this dream fulfilled, and what better way to honor the miracle that is Israel than by celebrating with your Tulsa Jewish community. Please register in advance to the numerous programs presented by the JFT Israel Committee.

Yom HaZikaron

Monday, May 8, 6:30 PM

National day of remembrance commemorates all soldiers and civilians who lost their lives during the struggle to defend the State of Israel, as well as remembering the victims of terror attacks. 

Please join us at the flag pole in the circle drive outside the CSJCC for a short ceremony. Following the ceremony, we will move to the Barbara and Dave Sylvan Auditorium for a dinner honoring Itzik Levin for his service in the Israeli Defense Forces 50 years ago during the Yom Kippur War.

Israeli Movie Night

Thursday, May 18, 7:00 PM

A new thought-provoking documentary about the incredible strength and resilience of the Jewish people. Through the lens of experts, military strategists, “start-up-Nation” leaders, journalists, and current and former political leaders, the documentary focuses on internal and external threats to the safety and security of the Jewish State. The film takes a behind-the-scenes look at peacemaking from the architects of the Abraham Accords and the challenge of peace with the Palestinians, the violent threat of antisemitism, Holocaust distortion, and its ideological assault on the Jewish State, and the path forward as Israel turns 75. 

Please join us in this free showing of The Future of Israel and Its Defenders provides a much-needed note of optimism about the future of the Jewish State during turbulent times. Popcorn and drinks available for purchase.
