Israel 70th Anniversary Festival

Israel 70th Anniversary Festival

A giant Western Wall mural and handmade metal roses forged from anti-Israeli missiles will be among the engaging sights and sounds marking Israel’s 70th anniversary at a rollicking outdoor festival.

The free public event will also feature Israeli music, dance, storytelling, children’s activities and food.

It is sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Ulster County and supported by every Ulster County synagogue and a synagogue in Catskill.

The festival will be held inside Woodstock Jewish Congregation if it rains.

In addition, Israeli artwork, ceremonial Judaica, Israeli jewelry, Israeli gifts and other handicrafts will be for sale throughout the day.

From 1 to 3 p.m., enjoy high-energy singing of Israeli music, under the direction of Cantor Bob Cohen of Kingston’s Congregation Emanuel of the Hudson Valley.

From 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., the Caravan Kids dance troupe will demonstrate and perform traditional and modern Israeli folk dances.
