Israel at 70 is a community-wide celebration to mark Israel’s 70th birthday. The Jewish Federation of Cleveland, together with local synagogues, agencies, and organizations, are bringing Israel to Cleveland through a variety of arts, cultural, and educational events for all ages.

Each year, our community comes together to celebrate Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s birthday. This year, the Jewish Federation of Cleveland marks the 70th year of Israel’s independence through a series of community-wide arts, cultural, and educational events – known collectively as the “Israel at 70” series. One of those events is IsraelFest! on May 6 at the Mandel JCC, which will be a carnival-like atmosphere with Israeli games, Israeli food, a shuk (Israeli market), a bounce house, and more fun for all ages.
Jewish Cleveland – get ready to rock out for Israel’s 70th birthday! This year, our community is coming together to celebrate Yom Ha’atzmaut on April 19 at Landerhaven in Mayfield Heights with a concert featuring Israeli superstar, David Broza, alongside two up-and-coming music stars, Tamar Eisenman and Maya Isac. “It’s the ultimate in specialness to have David Broza perform here in Cleveland for Israel’s birthday,” said Scott Simon, Concert Co-Chair.
The Cleveland Israel Arts Connection (CIAC) celebrates experiences that deepen our Jewish identity and share the beauty of Israel with everyone in our community through dance, film, music, literature, theater and the visual arts.
We did it! Together, over 9,700 community members raised more than $32.7 million to help care for our local and global Jewish community. What we do matters and every dollar makes a difference!
Twenty years ago, Cleveland entered into a strategic partnership with the Jewish Community of St. Petersburg, Russia, to help sustain and renew Jewish life in a city where Judaism was forbidden for seventy years of Communist rule.
