Yom Ha’azmaut and the IDF Music Ensemble


The San Diego Chapter of the Friends of the IDF welcomed the IDF Educational Corp Music Ensemble to San Diego in celebration of Yom Ha’azmaut over the May 12-16 weekend. The soldiers were generously hosted by several local Jewish families who are great supporters of the FIDF. On Friday night, Board member Debra Rosen and her husband, Hugh Rosen, hosted a Shabbat dinner for the soldiers and their hosting families. On Saturday evening, Congregation Beth El was filled with music, song and celebration as the Music Ensemble performed for a crowd of more than 300 people. The Ensemble also performed on Sunday afternoon at the Federation’s Yom Ha’Azmaut community event at Mission Bay.
