We’re Back from Our 40-Year Anniversary Tour

We’re back from our grand tour of the eastern and southern US with our Celebrate Ariel Performance Troupe in honor of Ariel’s 40th anniversary! Our delegation of teen performers, Mayor Eli Shaviro, and American Friends of Ariel (AFA) Executive Director Avi Zimmerman had a blast meeting our dedicated supporters and making new friends.

Ariel Celebrates National Immigrant Day

In the early 1990s, Ariel’s population doubled in under a decade with a mass wave of immigration from the Former Soviet Union (FSU). So it’s no surprise that the city of Ariel took to heart a landmark decision in the Israeli Knesset (parliament – ed.) earlier this year to declare the 7th of the Hebrew month of Cheshvan “National Immigrant Day.”

Thousands Attend Ariel ‘Extreme Fest’

This year, thousands of Israelis from all over the country flooded to Ariel’s brand-new mall for a special ‘Extreme Fest’ with food, fun — and attractions and activities from our Ariel National Center for Leadership Development, our ‘Song of the Heart’ Senior Choir, and the dancers from our ‘Celebrate Ariel’ Performance Troupe.

Congressional Delegation Visits Ariel

As with all USIEA delegations, last week’s Congressional mission spent a day in Ariel and the Samaria-Benjamin regions. AFA thanks the congressmen and women who visited with USIEA for taking a sincere interest in the people in Ariel and the region. We are proud to see that the US-Israel partnership is strong.

Everyone can find their place in Ariel. Here’s a glance at community initiatives and projects spanning all age groups, media, and fields of interest.
