A milestone anniversary calls for a party! To celebrate Israel’s 70th anniversary of independence this year, we’re hosting the first-ever IsraelFest!, a carnival for all ages on Sunday, May 6 from 12 - 5 pm at Mandel JCC’s Safran Park (26001 S. Woodland Road, Beachwood). Parking will be available at the Maltz Mseum, The Temple-Tifereth Israel, Mandel Jewish Day School, and Fuchs Mizrachi School. 

As if you needed convincing to go to this epic (and FREE) event, check out our top 5 reasons why you should join us:

5. So. Much. Food.

Kantina, FishStix, All City Candy, Sababa Cuisine, and Ellie’s will be serving up delicious kosher eats. We even heard there’s a rumor that Ben & Jerry’s might make an appearance.

4. Awesome Jams

Funk A Deli (formerly known as Yiddishe Cup) and Dance Israeli! will have you up on your feet.

3. Fun and Games

Celebrate Israel with bubbles, face painting, a bounce house, and balloon animals for little kids. Plus, there will be giant Jenga, corn hole, and gaga for big kids (and kids-at-heart).

2. Shuk Shopping Experience

We’re bringing in some of the best local vendors to create the ultimate shuk (Israeli marketplace) right here in CLE! Israeli jewelry, accessories, flowers, and more will be available for purchase. This is your chance to buy a gift for your loved one (or treat yourself).

1. Everyone Will Be There!

Let’s face it, it’s been a long winter. Spring is finally here in Cleveland and we are ready to celebrate Israel in the sun! Don’t miss your chance to celebrate Israel with our community. Even Slide, the Cleveland Indians Mascot, will be joining us.
