About Celebrate Israel: Boston

The Celebrate Israel: Boston festival is a one day celebration of Israeli arts, culture, music, dance, fun and food. The event is the result of an extraordinary year-long community collaboration that united an unprecedented number of local Jewish and Israeli organizations, synagogues and schools. Our festival is modeled after highly successful events held around the country and is organized through the partnership of Combined Jewish Philanthropies (CJP) and the Boston Israeli American Council (IAC).


It is our goal to create a family-friendly event that brings people together across ideological and denominational lines under the banner of Israel celebration. Please join us!

Help us load up the JF&CS Family Table kosher food bank! 

Bring along a donation of canned, kosher food to help end hunger by supporting the JF&CS Family Table. Teen volunteers from BBYO, NFTY-New England and the North Shore Teen Initiative will be working together to pack up your much needed donations. Imagine if everyone who attends brings something—the food bank shelves will be stocked for weeks to come! Canned tuna, salmon and vegetable soup are especially needed.
