THE UWS CELEBRATES ISRAEL
Thanks to a generous grant from UJA-Federation of New York, the entire Upper West Side Jewish community comes together for an annual multiday immersive Israeli experience with program offerings for the whole family. Enjoy Israel through music, food, art, movement, theater, animation, and more. The celebration begins with a day of programs for all ages, including a kosher street food festival, lectures, film, a culinary journey, a young professional's rooftop party, and lots of family-friendly programming.
The celebration continues with neighborhood favorite Party by the Shore, where the Hudson River becomes the Tel Aviv Tayelet at Boat Basin Cafe. Synagogues, schools, and Jewish organizations come together to sponsor events throughout the neighborhood, celebrating the rich and complex culture, history, and people of Israel.
