Jewish Cultural Festival
August 8 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Jewish communities of Mercer/Bucks will join to celebrate at the Jewish Cultural Festival on August 8, from 1-4 pm at Adath Israel Congregation, 1958 Lawrenceville Rd, Lawrenceville, NJ 08648.
This lively, rain-or-shine, event will feature live music, delicious kosher food, door prizes, plenty of shopping, in-person demonstrations, kids’ crafts and games, and lots of schmoozing. The festival also marks an enormous opportunity to meet many of the faces of the area’s synagogues, non-profit organizations, schools, and local businesses.
Attendees of the Jewish Cultural Festival will enjoy the variety of musical styles of the Jugtown Mountain String Band, which will play live during most of the festival. Those with kids will not want to miss children’s musician, Tim Hoh, from 2-2:30pm. Kids and adults alike will find themselves singing along and dancing to both talented musical groups.
A free door prize ticket is offered to any adult that has pre-registered for the event.
Pre-register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Pre-registration is open. Those that make a $10 donation will be given additional door prize tickets.
