Israelfest is All About the Fun!

Passover Issue, 2017

Israelfest, the largest community celebration of Israel on Long Island, will feature an exciting afternoon of family fun and activities for all ages. The event will take place Sunday, May 7, from 12:00-4:00pm, at North Hempstead Beach Park in Port Washington.

Activities for both young and old will include everything from rides and inflatables, to dunk tanks and climbing walls. Arts and crafts, creating Hebrew necklaces, designing and flying Israeli kites are just some of the activities that you will be able to do. Israelfest will also feature a food court with tasty treats from Colebeh, Benny's Pizza and The Green Olive. If you have never eaten falafel, come have your first falafel with us!

Israelfest is a collaboration of UJA-Federation of New York, Sid Jacobson Jewish Community Center and more than 20 partner synagogues, Jewish educational institutions and Jewish youth organizations from across Long Island. This year's event welcomes new sponsors TD Bank and Fairway Market.

Admission and parking is free. Kosher food and Israeli products will be sold by vendors. North Hempstead Beach Park is located at 175 West Shore Road in Port Washington. For more information, visit
