Celebrate Israel, a national network of festivals bringing together our coast-to-coast community in celebration of the Jewish state, had the largest-ever Celebrate Israel festival this past weekend in Los Angeles.

We are grateful to our partner organizations across the country, whose generous collaboration was integral to the success of the nationwide series of festivals. Spanning across 15 cities and drawing 50,000 participants, this year’s Celebrate Israel events marked the 70th anniversary of Israel’s independence, representing the largest celebration of this historic anniversary outside of Israel. 

”This weekend in Los Angeles, the IAC made history, with the single largest celebration of Israel's landmark 70th birthday outside of the Jewish State. We were inspired to join more than 18,000 people in a powerful display of love, pride, and support for the Jewish State and all that it represents.” Naty Saidoff, IAC Board Member
“Israel is a miracle and a gift we should be celebrating every day, not just once a year. The festivals across the nation bring to life our vision of Israeli-Americans, who serve as a living bridge between Israel and the Jewish American and pro-Israel communities here in the United States.”
- Shoham Nicolet, IAC Co-founder & CEO.
