Israel officially celebrated its 64th birthday last month, in conjunction with the Hebrew calendar. But the English date was this week -- May 14 -- and to mark the occasion, the Jewish Federation, along with the Jewish Exponent and other sponsors, is throwing a big party on Sunday. The Penn's Landing event also coincides with the 45th anniversary of the reunification of Jerusalem, a date we celebrate as Yom Yerushalayim.

It's a time to put aside the politics and fear that too often characterize discussions about Israel. It's a time to enjoy some Israeli culture amid a spirit of communal harmony and shmoozing. And in honor of the Exponent's 125th anniversary, we'll have special activities for budding journalists. So come on down and celebrate!
