Tel Aviv-Yaffo celebrates it centenary this year and has been adopted as the theme for this year’s Yom Ha’atzmaut celebrations by the SZCNSW…and the Israeli Government has followed suite.

telavivlogoExecutive Director of the State Zionist Council told J-Wire: “It was an obvious collaboration to us. After the success of the 60th Yom Ha’atzmaut  we wanted to continue to make celebrations that were both exciting and relevant to this community, promoting the centenary for city of Tel Aviv was just obvious.” Already at the end of 2008 the State Zionist Council adopted a new colour scheme for their logo incorporating the colour’s of the internationally used Tel-Aviv 100 logo. The major Sydney celebration, to take place on April 28th at Royal Randwick Racecourse, will imitate a Tel Aviv Street fair, incorporating traditional aspects such as street theatre, busking, poetry readings and Israeli dancing, as well as contemporary aspects such as arts and crafts markets, beach culture, live music and cafes and food stalls. The Young Adult party, TLV100, planned for April 29th, will adopt the dress theme of ‘White Tel Aviv.’ “It is exciting that what we are celebrating here in Sydney will also be celebrated on the streets of Israel and in Jewish communities around the world. As the cultural, intellectual and business capital of the Israel, the relevancy of Tel Aviv’s centenary reaches everyone in our community,” said Kogus. “We want people’s experience to be as authentic as possible without actually being there, they will come and hear the sounds of Tel Aviv, taste the foods of Tel Aviv, buy the arts and crafts of Tel Aviv, but most importantly, feel the modern Mediterranean vibe of Tel Aviv.”

The Israeli cabinet has decided to officiate ‘100 years of the First Hebrew City” as the theme for this year’s 61st Yom Ha’atzmaut celebrations.
