Please join us on Sunday, April 29th at 1:30pm at Beth Shalom for a community-wide celebration of Israel's 70th birthday! This free event ($5 suggested donation) will have Israeli music, a slideshow of Israeli pictures (see below for more information about this), time to share memories and hear other people's stories about Israel, as well as refreshments. Those who attend are encouraged to dress in either blue or white. There will also be some children's activities, including:
• STORYTIME with Children's Books about Israel
• CREATE A JEWISH STAR with Craft Sticks
• TISSUE PAPER STAINED GLASS Israeli Flags
• COLORING PAGES with Israeli Images
• DEAD SEA floating egg experiment
Please feel free, if you are so inclined, to send in pictures of your time in Israel, either digitally or in person (drop off for scanning in the Beth Shalom office), and they will be included in a slideshow to be presented at the event. Pictures that have you in them are preferred. If you choose to send a digital image of your picture(s), you can send to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to drop off your picture(s) to the office, they will be returned to you. The sooner you can send or drop off your pictures, the better.
We are also looking for memories of and thoughts about Israel that can be shared in a toast-like setting at this event. If you would like to write or share something that is no more than 2-3 minutes long, please feel free to contact Beth Rodgers at email@example.com and let her know.
Even if you have not been to Israel, we welcome your thoughts! Feel free to share with us the places you wish you could visit while in Israel, what you love about the State of Israel, or any other positive thoughts/memories that come to mind.
Looking forward to celebrating with you!
