Following last year’s phenomenal inaugural celebration, the Upper West Side is coming together again to celebrate Yom Ha’atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day. Synagogues, schools, and Jewish organizations are sponsoring events throughout the Upper West Side celebrating the rich and complex culture, history, and people of Israel. Events begin on Sunday, May 4 and culminate in a community-wide celebration on Tuesday, May 6.
Convened by The JCC in Manhattan in collaboration with and funded by UJA-Federation of New York. All Sunday and Monday events are free and open to the public. Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. Learn more about the events and register below.
The Hudson River becomes the Tel Aviv Tayelet (promenade) as the whole Upper West Side community comes together to celebrate Yom Ha’atzmaut. Come early for kids’ activities, or join us at 6 pm for an after-work celebration. Great Israeli music and food throughout included in the ticket price. Your first drink is on us!
