Ninth Annual Jewish Cultural Festival!

Join us for this fun, family-friendly event!

The Ninth Annual Jewish Cultural Festival returns to Temple Israel on Sunday, June 2. The entire community—both Jewish and non-Jewish –is invited to share our traditions and learn about us and our faith.

We have expanded our offerings to include additional entertainment for your listening and viewing pleasure, an Israeli-themed petting zoo, more education sessions in new areas of interest, and the Fifth Annual Oy Vey 5k run/walk.  All of the amazing food returns with some special additions and craft beer from Dayton Beer Company will be onsite for purchase.  

Find out more information about the event and stay up-to-date on all of the exciting news on our Facebook event page.

Oy Vey 5K

Did you know that the Oy Vey 5k is open to everyone?  Whether you are a walker or a runner, join us on this flat, fast course that boasts views of downtown Dayton and the river.  Start time is 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, June 2.  You can register online at tidayton.org.  Cost is $30 until May 31 and $35 on race day.  All registered participants will receive a race bib, participation medal and $5 in food tickets to use at the festival.  Gather your friends and family for a fun morning that leads into a festival with craft beer, amazing food, and eclectic entertainment.


Prayer & Play Goes Exploring

Prayer and Play 
Saturday, June 15 at 10:00 a.m.  

Meet at Rabbi Sobo’s for our morning prayer and craft and then (weather permitting) we’ll head to a playground approximately a half mile from away (walk or drive, take your pick!).  If the weather doesn’t cooperate, we’ll stay at the house for a playdate.  Feel free to pack a picnic lunch for the park!

All Prayer & Play events are facilitated by Rabbi Sobo and are perfect for not-yet-school-aged children (6 & under), and their families (parents/guardians, grandparents and older siblings).  The goal is to build community in a come-as-you-are, friendly environment.   RSVPs for all events are strongly encouraged, but not required, to the office or Rabbi Sobo.
