Celebrate Israel’s Birthday, Join the Community for Fun & Fellowship, Jennie Gates Beckman Explains

The Jewish Federation of Omaha (JFO) is a full-service organization serving the Jewish and Omaha community. The JFO and its family of agencies provide services and programs for all ages from early childhood education to a long-term, skilled care nursing home. Their vision is that every person in Omaha feels welcome on the campus and is inspired to have a meaningful and relevant relationship with the Jewish Federation of Omaha and its agencies.

Jennie Gates Beckman is the Director of Community Engagement & Education at The Jewish Federation of Omaha and she spent some time with Mike Hogan to talk about the importance of inclusion in the community and invite everyone to celebrate Israel's Independence Day (Yom Ha'Atzmaut) on Wednesday, May 4 from 5:00 - 7:00 pm at the Staenberg Kooper Fellman Campus at 132nd Street between Dodge and Pacific!

This free outdoor celebration of Israel will resemble an Israeli shuk, or marketplace where local vendors will sell arts & crafts, jewelry, food, and more. Children's activities will include face painting, petting zoo, photo booth, inflatables, crafts, and games! An evening of Israeli experiences that will provide fun for the entire family!
