The community is invited to a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Judy Cohn Plaza and Jack Roth Garden at this year’s community-wide Israel Independence Day celebration on Sunday, April 22 at the Maureen and Douglas Cohn Jewish Community Campus in Citrus Park.

The celebration this year is called Israel@70 and will run from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The festivities will feature entertainment and fun for kids and adults alike. It will include a Sip & Skype author presentation, a PJ Library Israel themed program for kids and a movie.

The Judy Cohn Plaza and Jack Roth Garden have transformed the front entryway to the Cohn Campus’ buildings into a beautiful area to enjoy for all who visit the campus or reside there, said Alissa Fischel, the Tampa JCCs and Federation’s chief development officer.

The plaza is dedicated in memory of Doug Cohn’s sister, Judy Cohn. Situated inside the new plaza is the garden, which was generously donated by Deborah Roth in memory of her husband, Jack Roth.

“We invite the entire community to attend the event to celebrate and enjoy this beautiful addition to our campus. We are exceptionally grateful for the generosity of Judy Cohn, z”l, and Deborah Roth and the tireless efforts of Maureen Cohn, Sharon Stein and others, for making the park a reality,” Fischel said.

The ceremonial ribbon cutting – originally scheduled for September, but postponed due to Hurricane Irma – will take place at noon as part of the opening ceremonies for Israel Independence Day and include Israeli songs and presenting of the colors by local war veterans.

The Cohn Campus is at 13009 Community Campus Drive, Tampa. Admission is free; parking is $5 per car and food and fare are available for a fee.
