The Embassy of Sri Lanka in Israel organised a Vesak celebration program at the ‘EVE’ hall in Tel Aviv, Israel on Saturday 13 May with the support and the participation of the Sri Lankan community in Israel. The hall was decorated with Vesak lanterns and Buddhist flags.

At the invitation of the Embassy, Venerable Wadamaldeniye Somaloka Thero attended the occasion from Sri Lanka and conducted the religious ceremony, including the Buddha Pooja and Dhamma sermon. Venerable Bambarabotuwe Ananda Mangala Thero from the United Kingdom and Venerable Bhikku Pangnanando from Israel also honoured the above Vesak Festival with their participation.
