Last Sunday, more than 3200 people of all ages and abilities came out to celebrate Israel‘s 70th as a proud community. From falafel to face painting, there was joy, happiness, and connection all around.
When we join together, something special happens. Through meaningful partnerships and connections, we are building a strong and enduring San Diego Jewish community. Your support also allows us to send over 100 teens to Israel each year through My Israel Journey scholarships; to build a 20 year-strong relationship with our partnership Region of Sha’ar HaNegev; to send hundreds of young professionals on Birthright Israel; to welcome young families to our community; care for vulnerable seniors; fund critical social services on the ground in Israel, and so much more. This is the power of Federation!
Israel Fest would not be possible without our partners, sponsors, and community organizations, especially Shevet Galim (Israeli Scouts), JNF, and Camp Mountain Chai.
A special thank you to IAC San Diego for their incredible partnership in making this year so successful.
If you believe in a strong Israel and a strong local Jewish community, let us know by supporting the incredible work YOU make possible.
