Celebrate Israel's 69th birthday in true Israeli style at the biggest party of the year while supporting an Israeli charity! This year we are celebrating on the actual night of Israeli Independence Day!

Doors open at 6:30pm and we'll celebrate until 9:00!

Your advance ticket buys you one vote for which charity will receive 100% OF THE PROCEEDS from the event! These charities are all funded in part by the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia. When you buy your advance ticket, you'll cast your vote for:

  • Yad LaKashish: Provides a freshly cooked, nutritious, communal hot lunch and a morning snack to low-income, elderly artisans in Jerusalem who are mostly immigrants and Holocaust survivors, who often struggle to buy and prepare their own food.

  • Latet - Aid for Life: The Aid for Life program provides needy Holocaust survivors with th emeans for a dignified existence; it eases their physical, mental and financial difficulties and conveys a message of respect, care and concern. Aid for Life is based upon Latet's experience and logistical capabilities invluding a broad network of volunteers and strategic cooperation agreements with the National Health Clinics, municipal welfare departments and the business sector.

  • Orr Shalom: Offers a broad range of programs tailored to young people of all ages - from newborns to college age - who are confronted with a wide variety of problems ranging from physical and mental handicaps to self-destructive behavior while also dealing with abuse or neglect at home. They are treated in a variety of environments and time-frames best suited to their individual needs - from group homes to individual foster homes; from short-term, emergency care for young people needing a refuge on short notice to long-term, intensive care for those confronting lasting problems.

Tickets are $15 in advance, $12 for students and includes Israeli food and bar snacks, DJ, hooka and a vote for which charity will receive all the proceeds from Mesiba. At the door, price is $20 for everyone. Student ID required at sign in!
