On March 10th, 2015, Slugs for Israel, an EMET for Israel group, hosted an Israeli Music Fest at the University of California, Santa Cruz. The goal of this event was to create a fun environment for students to come listen and dance to Israeli-style music. Slugs for Israel hoped to introduce students and community members to Israeli culture and music with authentic Israeli songs sung in Hebrew. The choice of music and musicians was great, and there was a huge turnout, with about 300 people coming to dance and to listen to the music!
