The 2022 AICF Anniversary Celebration

AICF’s Annual Celebration & ICA Awards celebrate the best of Israeli arts and culture

America-Israel Cultural Foundation (AICF) has played a leading role in the development of Israel’s arts and culture. Thanks to its early support for nearly all of Israel’s largest artistic institutions, and its reputation for nourishing the finest artists in music, dance, theater, and visual arts, the name AICF has become synonymous with culture in Israel.

AICF’s 2022 Celebration features performances and work by a wide array of extraordinary Israeli artists who have received AICF’s support throughout their career. Join us in recognizing Israeli artistic excellence, and in promoting Israeli artists’ contribution on the global stage!

The 2019 Celebration featured breath taking talents from 13-year-old cellist Nahar Eliaz to acclaimed visual artist Jan Tichy, and the genre-bending group Anbessa Orchestra. It also launched the inauguration of the ICA Awards (Israeli Culture & Arts Awards), honoring the iconic artists Hanna Azoulay Hasfari (Theatre), Vania Heymann (Visual Arts), Ron Leshem (Film/TV), Ohad Naharin (Dance), and Idan Raichel (Music) who also gave a stellar surprise performance.
