Tomorrow you will wish each other a happy Yom Ha’atzmaut with lots of dignity and layers of clothes, but tonight you will celebrate Israel’s Independence Day in full out “Tel Aviv Beach Style.” Hillel’s celebration begins at 8:45 in Lerner Party Space.

The free food has a Mediterranean theme, naturally – feast on falafel, hummus, and Israeli candy, among other things. Other freebies include suitably summery kind of things, like Havaiana sandals and inflatable beach balls. Stick around for the dance performances by CUBhangra, Pizmon, and Shalhevet. It sounds like it’s going to be a veritable party. Mazel tov!

The only tricky thing will be avoiding any and all human contact while wearing your swimsuit. Oh, and wash your hands after every bite.
