At Congregation Beth El in South Orange we will celebrate Israel’s 75th birthday on April 23 from 11:30 am – 1:00 pm.
Our celebration will open with the singing of Hatikvah, led by Beth El teen Eve Johnson. Ellen Berkowitz and her Israeli dance troupe will perform and lead us in some dances. We will enjoy falafel, pita, hummus, Israeli salad and treats for lunch. Participants will do crafts and activities to celebrate Yom Ha’atzmaut, including making Israeli flags and writing notes to put in the Kotel.
