Each year, Israel Solidarity Day brings together the Jewish community to celebrate Yom Ha'atzmaut (Israel Independence Day) and stand together in support of Israel. This year, as we celebrate Israel's 65th anniversary, we come together for one big event filled with music, family fun and Israeli spirit. This year's event is co-chaired by Miriam Lichstein and Rabbi Carl Wolkin. We hope you'll join us at Ravinia Festival, 200 Ravinia Park Road in Highland Park, on Sunday, April 28 for JUF's 2013 Israel Solidarity Day!
JUF's Israel at 65 celebration includes an afternoon of performances by the Maccabeats, the King David Drummers and an exciting headliner, a 3 mile Walk with Israel and a 1 mile Family Walk. Participants are welcome to bring along a picnic lunch and food will also be available for purchase.
Dollars raised at this year's Israel Solidarity Day will provide Israeli children with the supplies they need to enrich learning and literacy.
Volunteers are needed for a variety of important positions to make the event run smoothly. All Israel Solidarity Day volunteers will receive a complimentary TOV t-shirt. For more information on volunteer roles, shift times or to sign up to volunteer, call the JUF TOV Volunteer Network at (312) 444-2850 or visit www.juf.org/walk.
