Meal by Western Galilee chef for Celebrate Israel at 76

Noted Israeli chef Uri Arnon, owner of Arnold’s restaurant at Moshav Netiv Hashayara, and Roots restaurant in Akko, will prepare the kosher dinner for the Celebrate Israel at 76 community program, Tuesday, May 14, 6-7:30 p.m. at the Boonshoft Center for Jewish Culture and Education, 525 Versailles Dr., Centerville.

Arnon will talk about the Western Galilee’s food culture at 6:45 p.m., followed by two other guests from Israel who will talk about the situation there. A dessert activity for children will also be held at 6:45 p.m. During the evening, the Yom Hashoah Committee will dedicate the new Holocaust Memorial Daffodil Garden on the campus.

The JCC presents the dinner in partnership with Beth Abraham Synagogue, Beth Jacob Congregation, Dayton Hadassah, Hillel Academy, Jewish War Veterans Post #587, PJ Library, Temple Beth Or, and Temple Israel.
