21st October 2018
14:00 – 18:00
The 70th anniversary of the Israeli state is the theme of the 14th edition of the Shalom Festival. A small miracle can be called the country in its multifaceted contribution to education, science, development, religion, medicine, and agriculture.
Dedicated to the coexistence, dialogue and truth, the organization of the festival aim to support the modest Jewish community and fight anti-Semitism, as well as to be an answer to the biased information thriving in the media.
In a multicultural atmosphere, friends and all citizens are invited to join the festivity. Several nationalities will be present this year to show their love to Israel and thus make a positive statement: Israel is not isolated and is not alone.
Culture, art, music, politics, faith, charity, ideology, children’s animation, nature and gastronomy alternate during the afternoon on stage and stands; a unique composition that best describes the identity of the Shalom festival.
Boogie Boy and his band perform alongside gospel teams in a modern celebration of the Jewish-Christian roots, underlining the message of peace and friendship.
The Shalom Festival is an initiative of the Alliance for Peace in the Middle East, the Belgian Coalition for Israel, B’nai B’rith Antwerp, Koinonia Ministries, ORT Belgium, Christians for Israel, Beautiful Israel, Anet and ‘Chrétiens Amis d ‘Israël’.
