Our community’s Yom Ha’atzmaut celebration is one of the biggest events of the year, regularly drawing nearly 1,500 people to a live concert featuring a performer brought in directly from Israel. This year is going to be no exception. The concert and celebration for Israel’s 65th Independence Day takes place on Monday, April 15th, and early bird tickets are on sale now for just $15.65.

This year’s celebration features a live performance by Nurit Galron, one of the best loved singers in Israel. Nurit’s career spans several decades, and her 17 albums showcase her diverse musical styles – from jazz to rock and roll to Israeli classics. Nurit’s music appeals to everyone, and with her charismatic stage presence and impressive vocal ability, she’ll have you dancing in the aisles!
