The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia invites members of the community to celebrate their passion for baseball and Israel on Tuesday, May 12, at Citizens Bank Park for its annual Jewish Heritage Night celebration.
This year’s event offers two amazing events in one great night. From 4:30 p.m. until game time, Citizens Bank Way will be the site of a free Israeli Day festival, featuring music, interactive sports, juggling, face painting, carnival-themed entertainment and fun for all.
Watch martial arts, fencing and other athletic demonstrations from award-winning Maccabi athletes. Try your hand at Ga Ga (Israeli-inspired dodgeball), take a turn in the batting cage, shoot some hoops or play mini-golf. Thrill to the antics of the Give and Take Jugglers.
Build an Israeli flag out of K’NEX. Participate in a drum circle. Dance to the music of DJ Adam Weitz. Show your team colors with face painting and henna art, then post a Tap Snap photo on Facebook or Instagram.
Make and take home tzedakah boxes. Write letters to Israeli soldiers. Nosh on a commemorative Jewish star-shaped kosher pretzel. Maccabi athletes are encouraged to wear their uniforms or medals for a special commemorative pin.
And speaking of gifts, be among the first to purchase tickets to the Jewish Heritage Night match-up between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Pittsburgh Pirates via our special splash page at: jewishphilly.org/phillies and you will receive a coupon for a limited edition Phillies mezuzah case.
Your $26 pavilion-level seat will afford you a great view of all the action that evening including many Jewish-themed activities.
As a special incentive for synagogues, schools and other Jewish community organizations to attend, groups of 25 or more can request a subsidized bus from Jewish Federation by contacting Beth Razin at: email@example.com. All groups of 25 or more will have their name appear on the Phillies auxiliary message board.
