Temple Israel Jewish Cultural Festival
June 12 @ 11:00 am - 7:00 pm
|Temple Israel’s Jewish Cultural Festival, set for Sunday, June 12, 2022 opens the door to Judaism for all who wish to learn more about our traditions and our faith. In past years, over 2000 people turned out to enjoy music and stories, learn about rituals, Torah, and holidays, taste brisket and falafel, play games, shop for crafts and Judaica, dance and laugh. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we have adapted our Festival experience in order to preserve the health and safety of all attendees while still providing a meaningful and family-friendly experience. With our friends from all faiths, we enjoy a beautiful day at Temple and learn that we have a lot in common.
The Festival involves more than 150 Temple volunteers, who serve food, perform, lead tours or explain holidays, answer questions, and proudly welcome friends and newcomers to share a Jewish experience.
EDUCATION: The lively and interactive education sessions feature prominent regional and national speakers, and even have a chance to learn from our rabbis! Attendees will discover little known facts about Judaism as well explore the similarities and differences with other faiths. Everyone will also have the chance to tour Temple’s newly renovated building with a knowledgeable guide.
