Israel in the Gardens is an event produced by the Jewish Community Federation & Israel Center which is held at Yerba Buena Gardens in San Francisco. This annual event is a gathering of thousands to honor and celebrate Israel and Jewish culture. It’s a beautiful, family-friendly festival featuring film, music, and food, and includes performances by local Bay Area Israeli artists. They also hosted a fantastic 21+ after-party at Manor West!
The Israeli Scouts Friendship Caravan, a group of high school stage performers participated and local musician ZIVA sang the national anthem. The Contemporary Jewish Museum had screenings of Israeli film and animations. The “Teen Area” of the event was sponsored by the Goldman Fund and the Jewish Community High School of the Bay, with the “Kids’ Zone” sponsored by Be’chol Lashon. There were many media, corporate and community sponsors that ensured the success, growth, and support of this event and of the Israeli Jewish community at large in the San Francisco Bay Area. It was a privilege (and so much fun!) for SnapFiesta to participate in this festival.
