About The Event
Beginning at 6:30pm, we will have a special memorial service honoring fallen soldiers of Israel and victims of terrorism.
Following the Memorial Service, we will transition into celebrating Israel’s 70th Birthday with refreshments and a screening of the film “Operation Thunderbolt.”
This film is based on an actual event – the hijacking of a flight by terrorists and the freeing of Israeli hostages on July 4, 1976.
The operation was known as Operation Entebbe (military code name: "Operation Thunderbolt") and took place at Entebbe
Airport in Uganda. The film follows the events that take place after the flight's takeoff until the hostages return to Israel.
Please RSVP ahead of time!
