Israeli Wine Tasting in Honor of Yom Ha’atzmaut

In an amusing twist of events, local Jewish groups hosted a Yom Ha’atzmaut Israeli wine tasting on Lag B’Omer. 😛

Hosted by Birthright Israel NEXT, J-Fed’s NextGen, and DCJCC’s EntryPoint DC Sunday night, the wine tasting included samples from the Golan to Beit Shemesh. Hoards of young professionals gathered into the DCJCC’s community hall for socialization, snacks, and tastings at four stations placed around the room.

Also joining the merrymakers were representatives of The Jewish Agency for Israel to talk about aliyah options, and Israeli composer Rami Kleinstein, who had been performing around the Greater Washington area earlier that day. Along with the mix tapes of Israeli tunes, it made for one happening party!
