Eat and Sing for Israel @ 70 -- Shir Ba'Emek at the Whaling Museum
April 19, 2018

Israel celebrates its 70th Independence Day TODAY.

On Monday, April 30th, we will celebrate this special occasion in our community with a performance by the Afula-based Shir Ba'Emek choir. Israeli food prepared by Russell Morin Catering will be served in what is certain to be another signature night for our community in this fantastic venue.

Join us for the latest chapter in our book of events at the Museum.

  • We enjoyed meeting Nancy Spielberg and watching her film Above and Beyond.
  • David Broza brought the house down two years ago with his music and film East Jerusalem/West Jerusalem.
  • And there was In Search of Israeli Cuisine, another successful film event.

Don't miss out on what will surely be a fabulous event!

What is a Trunk of Tolerance?

It’s a free source of materials that teachers can borrow to enhance their existing Holocaust curriculum. It is another tool to teach students tolerance and encourage them to be active resistors to prejudice.
