  • Participating in special events, most notably, ShalomFest, KidsWorld, and the International Fair at Tulsa Community College.
  • Festival Israel – an ambitious way for Tulsa to mark Israeli Memorial Day (Yom Hazikaron) and Israel’s Independence Day (Yom Ha-Atzmaut). More than 2000 Jewish and non-Jewish Tulsans come to Zarrow Campus to commemorate those who gave their lives in defense of Israel, and then to celebrate her independence during an afternoon of food, culture, entertainment, and activities.
