Israel Independence Day Picnic

Sunday, May 19, 12:00 - 1:30 p.m., in the Redwood Grove

The Israel Independence Day BBQ and Falafel Fest, an annual celebration presented by the CBH Israel Matters Committee, takes place Sunday, May 19, from noon to 1:30 p.m. in the Congregation Bet Haverim Redwood Grove.

This year’s event will focus on the 71st anniversary of modern Israel in addition to featuring festival favorites such as falafels, barbecued kosher hot dogs, Israeli and American salads, topped off by sno-cones. There are numerous activities for adults and children with music, dancing, bounce houses, and face painting.

All events are free and open to the public.

Especially celebrated will be Israel’s amazing ethnic and cultural diversity, and how Israel remains the solitary beacon of democracy in the Middle East. We also want all to realize the incredible contributions that Israel has made and is making in every major field of scientific endeavor.
