Celebrate Shavuot – the ‘dairy’ festival – 19/20 May 2018

Shavuot is a holiday that commemorates one of the most important events in Jewish history – when the Torah was given to us at Mount Sinai.  For many, it is customary to spend the night learning.  Traditionally, we eat dairy produce over Shavuot – especially cheesecake – traditional or fancy !  And it being a statutory holiday, many families picnic in the parks or at the beach.  In addition, falling on a Sunday this year, it makes a nice long weekend !      

Why do we eat dairy produce?  gives interesting explanations.

Chag Shavuot Sameach.

Purim 2018 – music, parties and fancy dress in Netanya

Wednesday evening 28 February and Thursday 1 March 2018

Purim in Netanya – get your costumes ready

The colorful parade (Adloyada – ‘ad she lo yoda’ –  reference to the custom of drinking on Purim until you cannot tell the difference between right and wrong) returns to the city and for the first time in Israel representatives will march to a height of 21 meters! 
Thousands of participants, children, dancers, jugglers, clowns and performers will be celebrating the 90th anniversary of Netanya and 70 years of the State of Israel  in a variety of events that will last two days.

Thursday 1 March 2018  From 11.00 am along Shalom Aleichem Street (corner of Ben Zvi Boulevard) to Winter Park (Ben Gurion Blvd.). From 12.00am – Celebration in the Winter Park (Agamim) 
Friday 2 March 2018 – Starting at 11.00am – Happening and performances at the new Independence Square.

Purim is one of the most widely celebrated festivals in Israel. Purim here is embraced by the whole country, from kids to adults, by both religious and secular Jews, it is a time of fancy dress, festivity and is celebrated far beyond its original religious roots. Purim is celebrated across Israel, with street parties with carnival atmospheres taking place in almost every city, town and village in the country. Special foods for Purim are eaten, including Hamantaschen (Oznei Haman) – sweet pastry typically filled with sweet poppy seed, but also with jam, chocolate, dates or nuts.

Purim is also one of the biggest nights of the year at clubs up and down the country. With so much going on, and so much color in the amazing costumes that can be seen, Purim in Israel is a fascinating time to be in the country.

Beach time fun just got a little less expensive

Interior Minister Aryeh Deri announced that Israel’s beaches who still charge entrance fees will be a thing of the past. There are 136 authorized beaches in Israel but many of Israel’s nicest beaches – including in Ashkelon, in Nahariya, in Tiberias and Tel Aviv Hof Hatzuk – charge a fee for entrance. The idea was that this “symbolic” payment was to pay for cleanliness and upkeep of the beach. But over time, the charges rose, sometimes to 30 NIS per child and 60 NIS per adult. If you factor in parking too, that’s quite an expense for a day of fun in the sun.

On 13th March 2016, the Minister announced that the charges will be removed for the majority of Israel’s beaches. The fees will be lifted with the upkeep budget for beaches coming from another source. This will affect most beaches. The idea is to extend it to all but a decision from the Attorney General is pending regarding the beaches that are run by the National Parks Authority: Beit Yanai in North Netanya, Palmachim beach in South Rishon Lezion, Ashkelon Coast National Park, Habonim Beach and Achziv National Park Beach.

There is free entrance to Netanya’s Poleg, Argaman, Sironit and Seasons Beach, though there may be a fee for parking depending where you park.
