Ever Been to Israel?

Renee Eder on Tuesday, May 31, 2016

I have never been to Israel, but I love everything about the place, from the kind, beautiful people I’ve met to its rich Jewish history. I thoroughly enjoy Israeli foods, like falafel and shawarma, and can’t get enough of the lively music and dance. And, of course, what’s not to love about the Israeli market with some great finds? I don’t know when I will make my trip to Israel a  dream come true, but until then, I can still experience all of my favorite things about the Jewish homeland right here in Northern Virginia! And, I hope you will join me in doing so.

This year, on June 5 at Lerner Town Square @Tysons II, 8025 Galleria Drive Tysons, VA, (corner of 123 and International Drive), The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and the JCC of Northern Virginia present Israel Fest 2016. I hope you will join me and many from our community to celebrate Israel @ 68!

IsraelFest will include engaging events and interactive activities throughout the day, including IDF Musical Ensemble, “Lehaka Tz'vait”, and:

  • 65’ obstacle course and moon bounce
  • Gaga Pit
  • Picture yourself in Jerusalem (Green Screen)
  • Krav Maga demonstrations
  • Wine Tasting
  • Shesh Besh (backgammon)
  • Shop the Shuk (market place)
  • Visit the Kotel (Western Wall)
  • Exhibits…and more!
  • Food available for purchase

FREE Admission, FREE on-site Parking and METRO accessible (Silver Line Tysons Corner Metro Station)!

This program is in partnership with The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and in collaboration with area synagogues and Jewish agencies. Learn more about this exciting annual event here or contact Laurie Albert, Director of Community Engagement at the JCC of Northern Virginia, at or 703.537.3064.

Come enjoy Israeli culture with family and friends. We look forward to seeing you there!
