Celebrating Israel at 67:

On May 14, our community came together to celebrate Israel’s 67th Independence Day. Despite rainy weather, young and old alike came out to enjoy the festive afternoon, including an exciting performance by the Mostly Kosher band, Israeli dancing with the talented Yoni Carr, uniquely crafted goods at the Israeli Artists Marketplace, and tasty Israeli treats by Blueberry Hill Catering. Topped off by Israel-themed crafts and face painting for the kids, and the opportunity to donate goods and write letters to US troops abroad via our NextGen OC’s  Tikkun for Troops booth, the free community festivities had something for everyone! A big thank you to all of the volunteers who helped make this event possible, and everyone who joined us in celebrating Israel's 67th birthday. Click here to view photos, courtesy of Chuck Weinberg.

Mark your calendars for the beloved Israel Expo, which will be returning next year on Sunday, June 5, 2016. More information will be available in the coming months - stay tuned!

Join us this Sunday morning as we assemble 2,000 packages for your troops. All ages are welcome at this event. We will even have a separate assembly line for families with young children to volunteer at their own pace. 

Sunday, May 31 at 9:00 a.m.
Tarbut V'Torah, 5 Federation Way, Irvine, CA 92603

You can help. 100% of your donation will go to humanitarian aid efforts in Nepal.
