JCC’s Annual Picnic on the Lawn – Celebrating Israeli Culture!

Join us in getting ready for Shabbat and celebrating Israeli culture featuring Drumatix, a vibrant blend of drumming and dance using everyday objects, large barrels/drums, body percussion and FUN! Founder Noa Barankin is an award-winning Israeli dancer, musician and choreographer.  

We will have outdoor games courtesy of Knucklebones, and activities highlighting Israeli culture, such as STEM and art projects, including an opportunity to leave messages for Israelis in our unique Kotel / West(ern) Lawn Wall.  

There's plenty for everyone, from the youngest to the oldest. Feel free to bring your own picnic or purchase from an Israeli themed food truck with kosher options. Plan on unwinding at this evening with friends, family, community and fun!

Cost: $18/family; free for members
