Upcoming events


White Night in Tel Aviv

Tel Aviv’s White Night celebration is one of the biggest events of the year, with all night parties; and when the shop owners and restaurants literally don’t close. Stores that usually close at 10pm will be open till 6am and beer will be drunk and music will be heard in different public locations throughout the city. Even some museums and galleries stay open all night, so there are hundreds of things to do!  


Purim Street Party

Purim is one of the most important Israeli holidays, celebrated all over the country with the biggest events taking place in Tel Aviv. The very nature of the holiday is religious, but these days religious traditions are successfully merged with all night clubbing and carnival atmosphere. The highlight of Purim celebration is the street party and festival with people celebrating all day and night long.  


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.


Hebrew Language Day

Eliezer Ben Yehuda is known as the father of spoken Hebrew. He came to Palestine in 1881 with a dream to recreate Hebrew as a spoken language, a language which had not been spoken in almost 2,000 years. Every year on the birthday, Israel celebrates Hebrew Language Day to remember Eliezer and his dream to bring the Hebrew language to the Jewish nation. The Hebrew language remains a fundamental element for Israel society, which unites people from around the world who make Aliyah to the Land of Israel. Even though Eliezer died in 1922 many years before Israel's Independence, his dream came true and today Hebrew is the official language in the modern State of 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!
