IsraPalooza chitribe

Join us for *IsraPalooza* – a special “corona-days” Zoom celebration of Yom Ha’Atzmaut! Brought to you by Israel Story, the world’s #1 Jewish podcast, ‘IsraPalooza’ is a day full of intimate conversations, interviews, family-friendly workshops, cooking classes and concerts featuring some of the most interesting Israelis around! On Wednesday, April, 29, 2020 – Israel’s 72nd Independence Day – you’ll get the chance to sample a refreshing smorgasbord of Israeli tastes: We’ll have a session with world-famous violinist Itzhak Perlman and a live concert with David Broza.


There will be talks with “starchitect” Moshe Safdie, cookbook author and food anthropologist Joan Nathan, the inventor of the modern-day firewall Gil Shwed, and trailblazing Arab-Israeli news anchor לוסי אהריש Lucy Aharish. There will also be interactive events, like a family-friendly self-portrait workshop with renowned artist Hanoch Piven, and a shakshuka cooking class with celebrity chef Nir Mesika. And that’s just some of our all-star line-up!

Events start at 10am EDT (5 pm Israel Time) and will continue throughout the day. Tickets are available here and online at IsraPalooza.org for a suggested donation of $18 (to see the sliding scale donation option go to Israpalooza.org), and if your shul, JCC, or local organization are interested in participating, we also have special group rates.
