Come and enjoy the uninhibited antics of the Give And Take Jugglers during the pre-game festival.

Don't miss out on an extraordinary evening of family entertainment at Citizens Bank Park in South Philadelphia. Tuesday, Aug. 7 is Federation's second annual Jewish Heritage Night -- a time to come together as one community of Jewish Philadelphians for a fun-filled festive night of fellowship, engaging exhibits, music and dance performances, storytelling, kosher snacks, sweet treats and special surprises.

Now through July 20, you can buy your terrace-level seats online at www.jewishphilly.org for $30 per person and a portion of every ticket sold will benefit Federation-funded health, education, social action and humanitarian services here in Greater Philadelphia, in Israel and in the former Soviet Union.

Come early on Aug. 7 and take advantage of the full line-up of acts that will perform during the pre-game festival and throughout the Phillies game.

Beginning at 5 p.m., just outside the third base gate, you will be wowed by the antics of the Give and Take Jugglers and their nose-bleed-producing stilt walkers; learn about Krav Maga -- the official martial arts training regime of the Israel Defense Forces; discover some new Israeli dance moves; delight in the jazz and Klezmer music styles of Ken Ulansey and his quartet; enjoy a variety of performances by campers from Ramah Day Camp; travel back in time with a costumed character from Historic Philadelphia who will share stories about the history of baseball and Philadelphia and what it means to be an American.

Interact with the new exhibit at the National Museum of American Jewish History, "To Bigotry No Sanction: George Washington and Religious Freedom," and write a personal letter to President Barack Obama about what it means to be a United States citizen. Enjoy kosher food to nosh on from Betty the Caterer. Take a spin on the WOGL Radio prize wheel and learn about and sign up for Federation's Mega Mission to Israel, Dec. 19-28.

All this and a ticket to the Phillies game for just $30 per person.

The fun continues before the first pitch, to be lobbed by the Phillie Phanatic to Federation President Sherrie R. Savett. Federation will present a short video on Phanavision showing all in attendance the wonderful work that we make possible through the support of caring community members like you.

The Ramah Day Camp choir will perform the national anthem and Federation CEO Ira M. Schwartz will deliver some special surprises to fans in our terrace section.

So what are you waiting for? Order your tickets online now through July 20 at www.jewishphilly.org, click on the Jewish Heritage Night banner and purchase seats for an extraordinary evening.

See you on Tuesday, Aug. 7!

This event is made possible through the financial and in-kind support of: Blank Rome, LLC; the Jewish Exponent; Center City Film and Video and Just Born.
