About the Festival Honoree Program
2016 Festival Honoree Of The Year
Making Your Contribution
Past Honorees


Thank you for your interest in our Festival Honoree of the Year Program! The program recognizes individuals whose dedication and outstanding contributions over the years have helped to maintain, strengthen, and enrich the Israel Folkdance Festival of Boston.

The Israel Folkdance Festival of Boston is a year-round, volunteer-led, non-profit organization. Many people work countless hours to coordinate and stage this huge annual production, and hundreds of performers choreograph, rehearse, and travel great distances in order to participate in the big day. Members of the organizing committee attend to the publicity, lighting, and audio production, and a myriad of logistical details. Though the cost of producing the Festival has increased over the years, we are committed to keeping ticket prices modest in order to maximize the community’s ability to enjoy this event.

Each year, we invite you to honor a distinguished leader in the Israeli dance community and to support this vibrant Jewish Boston institution by making a generous tax-deductible contribution to the Israel Folkdance Festival of Boston.


It is our great privilege to announce that, in honor of the Festival’s 40th anniversary, the 2016 Festival Honoree of the Year is each and every one of you. Whether you have had a lifelong love affair with Israeli dance or are just beginning to discover its magic, the Festival continues to thrive because of your energy and hard work. Thanks to our dedicated performers, choreographers, volunteers, and audience members, the Festival has remained a vibrant Jewish Boston institution for 40 years. To honor those 40 years, we are recognizing the journey of the Festival itself and all of you who have been a part of it.

We will be doing several special things this year to tell the story of the Festival, and we hope you will help us do that by sharing your Festival memories. However, an anniversary is as much about the upcoming years as it is about the ones before. By donating to the Israel Folkdance Festival of Boston, you ensure that the Festival, about which we all care so passionately, will continue to create lifelong memories, go from strength to strength, and celebrate many more special anniversaries. Thank you for your support and for being a part of the the Festival for the past 40 years and for countless years to come.

Be sure to join us on Sunday March 13th for our 40th annual production and special anniversary celebration. Enjoy the show!
