Upcoming events


Haifa Wine Festival

The Haifa Wine Festival is the largest wine festival to take place in the north, featuring wine, champagne tastings, food stalls offering cheese and deli selections, as well as live music. The event will showcase some 30 local winemakers and serves to promote the local community and wine culture in northern Israel.


Family Day (Yom HaMishpacha)

While the United States and other countries around the world celebrate Mother's and Father's Day individually, Israel is celebrating its annual Yom HaMishpacha, or Family Day. This day, which originally began as Mother's Day in 1947, was established to honor the family unit and its centrality to Israeli life. It was decided around the year 2000 that Yom HaMishpacha would be celebrated on the 30th of Shevat, the day of Henrietta Szold’s death. Though Henrietta Szold never had any kids, she was known as “the mother of all children” and was extremely active in creating the framework for Jewish immigrant children from around the world. Yom HaMishpacha has evolved into a day of love and celebration for mothers, fathers, and children. It is particularly popular in Israeli schools and kindergartens where children create art projects and bring photographs of their families to be displayed at school. After school, many families celebrate by going on hikes, picnics, or playing games together. Yom HaMishpacha is a special day in Israeli society when families celebrate and remember the importance of cherishing those closest to them.


Holiday of Holidays

The Holiday of Holidays Festival will run for its 27th year in Haifa, city of religions, cultures, food, and views. The festival is an initiative of Beit Ha’Gefen – Arab-Jewish Cultural Center, and the Haifa Municipality, which was founded in 1993 and takes place in Beit Ha’Gefen and Wadi Nisnas and the German Colony in Haifa. The aim of the festival is to promote and foster tolerance and mutual respect through culture and art. The festival presents art exhibitions, artist meetings, and various performances with an emphasis on cultural diversity in Haifa and Israel. The works are displayed both in the public space - the alleys of the Wadi Nisnas neighborhood coming to the German Colony, Haifa, and in the Beit Hagefen Gallery and this year also on billboards throughout the Hadar neighborhood - a special exhibition by Haifa artists! This year we will celebrate together from 10-20 December – and due to this year’s unique circumstances we will have most of our events On Line. The Holiday of Holidays festival is the culmination of the year of activity at Beit Ha’Gefen, and is designed in the spirit of the values of Beit Ha’Gefen. Our activities are based on the belief that interpersonal acquaintance and encounter with another culture, its stories, cultural and spiritual assets, are important for breaking down barriers and building trust between different nationalities, ethnic and religious groups in Haifa and Israel.

La Fabrica @lafabricapty is an excellent Israeli-Moroccan restaurant in Panama City where a guy named Itai prepares the food and a guy named Chai prepares the beer. According to food critic @gilhovavisrael these beers are some of the best he's had in his 56 years.

The photographed dish is the Mega Shakshuka, made with precision and high quality ingredients.

Next time you find yourself on a plane to Panama, this should definitely be on your restaurant list!
