See You at Israel Fest this Sunday!

Today, our Federation is bustling with final preparations for this Sunday’s Israel Fest 65, our huge, free annual celebration. Once again, thousands from throughout our community will be headed to Mizner Park Amphitheater in downtown Boca Raton, filled with pride and joy for our homeland. Together we’ll remember the miracle of this pioneering nation, and pay tribute to its phenomenal, rapid transformation into today’s creative, dynamic, culturally vibrant State of Israel at the cutting edge of technology, research and entrepreneurship.

With family fun starting at 3:30 pm, live music from the Maccabeats and the Boca Raton Symphonia, students and dignitaries, flags and banners, falafel and other great kosher food, Israel Fest 65 is sure to delight and inspire all ages. Israel Fest 65 will certainly be a major highlight of my first year as CEO in this vibrant Jewish community. Don’t miss the sights, sounds, tastes and spirit of Israel with your pro-Israel neighbors at Mizner Park Amphitheater this Sunday, May 19.

I’m looking forward to raising the ruach with you! As always, I’m also glad to get your ideas about our community at

Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County
