~Israel Solidarity Day in Chicago! by aklionsky

Thanks for the heads-up, aji525!

Chicago’s got great plans for celebrating the big Six-Oh with Israel, as well, also including the Idan Raichel Project.

On Sunday, May 4 the Jewish United Fund/Chicago Federation will host Israel Solidarity Day/The Walk With Israel. The Walk, an annual tradition that brings Jews from all around Chicago to celebrate, will commence with an Israel rally, that will turn into a 6k walk along the lake.

After eating falafel (delicious!), pizza, and other delicacies from kosher restaurants in and around Chicago, everyone will get to hear the famous Idan Raichel Project!

This will be Raichel’s second time playing in Chicago in less than a year, and I think it’s safe to say that everyone’s pretty pumped up about hearing him again!

The birthday celebrations continue that week at Northwestern University with guests like David Broza and Elie Wiesel.

To whom it may concern,

I am currently working on a group project for a Business Professionals of America (BPA) competition. The project is to design a site about the historical city of Chicago. While we were searching the web we found a photograph on your website that fit our needs perfectly. We have not talked to our advisor yet about copyright issues, but we decided to get a head start. We would like to know if you would give us permission to use your image, with the proper attribution of course. I would appreciate it if you would respond as soon as possible for we are running short on time. Thank you so much for your time.
