With over two thousand invitations sent out in recent weeks, the 4th of July party at the US Embassy in Tel Aviv is due to take place at 7 p.m. Thursday night.
Traditional American food has been prepared for the event, with 1,700 hamburgers, 3,040 slices of pizza ready to be served, as well as roast beef, kebabs, fish sticks, corn beef, kosher sushi, mountains of ice cream, and 1,000 bottles of water to wash it all down.
Catch all the excitement online, with a live viewing of the celebration, exclusive to The Jerusalem Post.
Be there as guests arrive, Kelly Raby sings the “Star-Spangled Banner,” Carmi Shimron sings “Hatikva,” and the US ambassador to Israel James Cunningham, President Shimon Peres, and Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu deliver their remarks. And don’t miss how the fireworks light up the night sky above the cliffs of the Mediterranean.
Among the major sponsors serving food and drinks will be McDonalds, Domino’s Pizza, Ben & Jerry’s and Coca Cola.
