Hagigah Ivrit highlights grassroots and community organization events related to Hebrew language education and Hebrew culture.  By extension, programs related to Israel that share the humor, beauty and relevance of Hebrew language in our lives are included as well. The festival is marketed by Tarbuton.

Tarbuton is a 501c3 founded in 2006 to engage and strengthen San Diego’s Jewish community through Israeli cultural programs for youth and adults. Startup18, a Tarbuton program, supports grassroots Jewish and Israeli initiatives that educate, build community and strengthen Jewish identity. www.startup18.org
