Israel’s Yoms Remembrances and Celebrations

The Israel Engagement Committee and Israel Emissary Shahaf Feinkuchen invite you to “Israel’s Yoms: Remembrances and Celebrations.” Three special events are planned including a Yom HaZikaron (Israeli Memorial Day) ceremony and dinner on Monday, May 13; A Taste of Israel: Wine and Food Tasting Dinner for 21+ on Thursday, May 16; and our annual family fun event entitled “Israel Shalom Fest” for Yom Ha’Atzmaut (Israel Independence Day). View below for more details on each of our Israeli National Days. 

Please join us at the flag pole outside the CSJCC for a short ceremony remembering 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. This year many more soldiers died while defending Israel from terror, and many families joined the circle of Israeli bereaved families. Join us in remembering them and their stories. 

Join us for a special Israeli Wine & Food Tasting Dinner for Yom Ha’Atzmaut. We joined forces with the experienced Chef Aaron B. Ware from OSU Institute of Technology Culinary Arts to curate a unique dinner just for you.Come savor the vibrant flavors of the region and immerse yourself in the essence of a land abundant with milk and honey. This program is for 21+ years old, $36 per person, and includes dinner & wine pairings.  

Celebrate Israel Independence Day with events for the entire family including arts & crafts, bouncy house, Israeli map room, Israeli short films, Israeli products for sale and more! Fun Israeli merch available for purchase, and the first 50 people who register will receive a free Israeli-themed gift!Come and go as you like between 3 -6 pm. Our two special Israeli heroes will join us for the last time before they head back home.
