Taste of Israel gives flavor of myriad achievements

Get “A Taste of the Best of Israel” at an interactive exhibit showcasing 60 years of Israeli innovation and achievement.

Companion activities for people of all ages include elaborate mind games from Israel’s Weizmann Institute, a Lego irrigation project demonstrating how Israelis make the desert bloom, and a replica of Israel’s Declaration of Independence — inviting visitors to add their signatures to those of David Ben-Gurion and Golda Meir, and to suggest improvements. Participants can also design aid missions to the world’s needy, join arts and crafts workshops and compete in a game of Israeli Trivial Pursuit.

“A Taste of the Best of Israel” will be divided into two sections: one in Yerba Buena’s central grassy area and the other in the family and children’s area.
