On April 19, 2018, Israel marked its anniversary. Jewish Cleveland is acknowledging the anniversary with a full year of celebration called Israel at 70. "Every year is a celebration of Israel as a vibrant and secure country, but 70 is a special year," said Renny Wolfson, Co-Chair along with his wife, Annemarie and Mitch and Sue Frankel.

We got the party started with our kick-off event, Yom Ha'atzmaut – an amazing concert with Tamar Eisenmen, Maya Isac, and Israeli superstar, David Broza. And a few weeks later, our community raised the bar with IsraelFest – an all-day outdoor festival.

"We're celebrating Israel's future," said Sue Frankel. "Every event the Federation is having this year allows our community to not only remember the past, but embrace the next 70 years and celebrate together as one family."

Watch a video below from Co-Chairs Sue & Mitch Frankel and Annemarie & Renny Wolfson about how Jewish Cleveland is celebrating Israel's milestone anniversary of independence:
