NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - Westminster College's Office of Diversity Services will host its annual International Festival Tuesday, Dec. 4, beginning at 5 p.m. in Berlin Lounge of the McKelvey Campus Center. The event is free to the public.

Westminster College represents many countries, cultures and ethnic traditions from around the world. The goal of the festival is to celebrate and increase awareness of diversity at Westminster College.

The evening will include a diverse array of ethnic food, entertainment, and tables featuring different cultures from around the world. In honor of the College's partnership with Western Galilee College in Israel, this year's festival will highlight Israeli dancing led by Tomer Elooz and Talia Shlomi, Israeli emissaries from Youngstown, Ohio. These dances are circle dances designed specifically for celebrations. They are fun, easy to learn and appropriate for all ages.
