"Israel Under the Stars" to Bring Community Together on May 10

Israel Independence Day Celebration & Concert Moves to West Boca

Thousands of South Palm Beach County residents will once again stand together in solidarity and spirit, celebrate with flags and falafel, and share in joyous celebration of Yom Ha’Atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day. “Israel Under The Stars,” the free annual community-wide celebration presented by the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) of the Jewish Federation of South Palm Beach County, returns to commemorate Israel’s 63 years of statehood on Tuesday evening, May 10, 2011. This year’s event has moved to an exciting new location: Sunset Cove Amphitheater at South County Regional Park, 12551 Glades Road, in Boca Raton
(2.5 miles west of US 441/SR 7). 

“For three hours on Israel Independence Day, people of all ages and backgrounds from throughout our community have the opportunity to be transported to the sights, sounds  and tastes of Israel,” said Stephen Mendelsohn, a resident of West Boca. He and his wife Lisa are serving as this year’s Honorary Co-chairs of the event. “Now more than ever, it is especially important to show that South Palm Beach County stands as one in support of the State of Israel. We look forward to a great turnout.”

Israel Under The Stars will feature performances by two artists. Brett Loewenstern is the 17 year old high school student from Boca Raton who gained notoriety as a 10th season American Idol Semi-finalist. Joshua Nelson, the “Prince of Kosher Gospel”, marries Jewish religious lyrics and meanings with the soulful sounds of American gospel music rooted in African tradition as a tool to escape social injustice.

The Park will open at 5:00 pm for those who wish to picnic or to participate in activities before the program begins. There will be face painting with Israeli flags, postcards sent to soldiers in the Israeli Defense Forces, and music. Kosher food and beverages will be available for sale.

The “Israel Under The Stars” program will begin at 6:00 pm. In addition to the featured performers, children from local Jewish Day Schools and synagogue religious schools will engage in song and will perform a traditional Daglanut Israeli flag routine. The program will also include a tribute to Gilad Shalit, the IDF soldier who has been held in captivity since his kidnapping by Hamas in the summer of 2006, and remarks by local dignitaries.   

Rabbi David Steinhardt, Chair of the Jewish Community Relations Council, added “Israel Under The Stars’ is traditionally the largest annual event produced by the Jewish Federation on behalf of our community. It allows people of all faiths to demonstrate the fact that we are united in our support of the only true democracy in the Middle East. As Americans, we not only recognize the importance of the alliance between Israel and the United States, but we also celebrate that which Israel has achieved in such a short period of time.”

Lawn chairs, blankets, picnic baskets and strollers are welcome.
The event will take place rain or shine. Plenty of free parking will be available. For more information, please call the JCRC hotline at
561-852-6024 or visit

The JCRC also invites community members and businesses to express their pride and support of Israel by contributing to One Voice for Israel.  Details regarding this special tribute to commemorate Israel Independence Day are available at


Israel Under The Stars” is generously supported by Gold Sponsor
G.L. Homes, as well as Bronze Sponsor Greenberg Traurig LLP. For more information about corporate sponsorship of JCRC events, call 561-852-3179.
