3,500 Celebrate Israel@70 at Mizner Park Amphitheater

About the Event
Amid a sea of blue and white, nearly 3,500 local residents and leaders came together in solidarity, spirit and vibrant Jewish diversity to celebrate the 70th anniversary – and the miracles - of the modern State of Israel. The enthusiastic crowd was transported to the sights, sounds and tastes of Israel, right in Mizner Park Amphitheater on April 18, as Yom HaZikaron (Israel Memorial Day) transitioned into Yom HaAtzmaut (Israel Independence Day).

Israel Fest was presented by the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, with its Judi & Allan Schuman Center for Israel Engagement and Deborah & Larry D. Silver Center for Jewish Engagement. Debra and Larry Halperin chaired the evening, and Judi and Allan served as Honorary Chairs.
