Dallas will make history on Sunday when American Airlines hosts the largest, outdoor, public, pro-Israel rally in North Texas. From 12 to 5 p.m., Party on the Plaza: A Celebration of Israel will highlight Israel’s contributions to medicine, science, art, and technology. The event, sponsored by the Jewish Community Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of Dallas, will also have activities for the kiddos and kosher Israeli and American food.
If that’s not enough reason to attend, keynote speakers include Mayor Tom Leppert, Rabbi Adam Raskin, the president of the Rabbinic Association of Greater Dallas, and Pastor Terri Pearsons, representing Christians United for Israel and Eagle Mountain International Church. One of Israel’s most popular young musicians, Itamar Meiri, will play hits from his recent album as well as classic tunes. To get psyched for the concert, check out his MySpace page.
Best of all: It’s free. Well, everything except the food. You can’t win ’em all.
