Fifteen hundred celebrants at the Israel Festival in Los Angeles April 29 decorated themselves with the new Golan Tattoo. The temporary sticker is an exact replica of the "Ha'am im haGolan" (The Nation is With the Golan) bumper sticker that has become a mainstay in popular Israeli and Los Angeles culture.

During the Israel Festival at Woodley Park on Sun., April 29, 1,500 people left with a unique souvenir: a political tattoo. The temporary tattoo is a replica of the "Ha'am Im HaGolan" ("The Nation Is With the Golan") bumper sticker popular among many Israelis and some Diaspora Jews.

At its festival booth, the organization Friends of the Golan showed off new real estate developments available for purchase on the Golan Heights, high-tech jobs and several charitable projects from The Golan Fund. In addition, the booth featured current projects sponsored through Los Angeles-based donations: a park at Kibbutz Afik and Park Baruch, to be built in Keshet. Dennis Van Meter of Kibbutz Afik helped anchor the volunteer crew at the festival.

In addition, more than 300 people signed a petition expressing unequivocal support for the people of the Golan and Israel.

Friends of the Golan, Los Angeles, can be reached at golanusa@hotmail.com or by calling (310) 586-1792.
