I have been meaning to take my family to this festival for the past couple of years, but something has always thrown a wrench in the schedule. This year we finally made it, and we’ll definitely be back!
Where else can you decorate your own yarmulka/kippa (Jewish ritual skullcap), take part in a tea ceremony, bake a challah, learn chinese, make a traditional papercut, listen to Klezmer and cantorial music and snack on a kosher vegetarian eggroll and a chocolate eggcream all in a 120+ year old working Orthodox synagogue?!
To find out more check out the Museum at Eldridge Street

Thank you for hosting the WW Blog Hop!
Sounds like a fun and interesting festival Happy WW 🙂
Sounds like a fantastic festival. Let me know if you ever want to write a guest post at Kibitz Spot.
That sounds like a fun festival! And it’s awesome that it’s in a 120+ year old working Orthodox synagogue! I’d probably be distracted by looking at all the historical-ness of the building. 🙂

I love the mix! Looks like a lot of fun too!
I bet the klezmer band was fun. We missed this year’s Israeli Fest because it was the same weekend as my nephew’s ordination.
Looks like everyone is having fun.
Hope your enjoy your day! My WW is open hope you can stop by.
How cool. After when I read skull I was thinking something like sugar skulls a Jewish version of Mexico’s Dia de Las Muertes. Took me a few lol Looks like a ton of fun!
Thanks for linking up
It looks like a great day was had!
I actually used to work for Rabbi William H. Lebeau, former Dean of The Rabbinical School, Vice Chancellor and Chairman of the Department of Professional Skills, and Lecturer of Professional Skills at the Jewish Theological Seminary of America of Conservative Judaism in New York City. The idea of decorate your own yarmulka/kippa sounds so fun for families to do together!
I just realize when you type to fast for your device, it cuts stuff off, like the word butterfly in my name, LOL!
Very cool, I love the multicultural aspect of it!
