Yom HaAtzamut From Holy Land to Club Land— The Evolution of Israel through Music

by | Apr 9, 2018 | What’s Happening

Thursday, April 19, 6:30 pm, Congregation Beth El

On 5 Iyar, 1948 the entire world watched as Israel became an independent nation. On 5 Iyar, 2018 (April 19), the entire world will celebrate as Israel turns 70. Eyal Rob, a screenwriting professor by day and Tel Aviv DJ by night, will help Tidewater celebrate.

Along with DJ Eyal Rob, the celebration includes Israeli food, arts and crafts for kids, a joint mural painting for older kids and adults, PJ Library activities, silent auction of local Jewish artists’ work, Israeli wine tastings (with minimal cost) and more.

Rob, a co-founder of Israel’s first music television channel, Israeli journalist and culture critic, brings the Tel Aviv music scene to Tidewater, reflecting the young Jewish nation’s songs through wars, peace, struggle and hope for an interactive Yom HaAtzamut celebration for all ages.

A member of Soulico, Tel Aviv’s hottest DJ collective, until recently signing on to the NYC label JDub, Rob has DJ’d in various festivals around the world, including twice at SXSW in Austin, Texas, and spins in the top notch clubs and events for the Jewish community and campus parties around the world.

The event will begin at 5:45 pm for Minyan (all are invited, but not required).

Beth El is located at 422 Shirley Avenue. This program sponsored by the CRC, Beth El, and in part through grants from the Tidewater Jewish Foundation and the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater.
