Festival Education


Thank you to everyone who supported our 2021 events!  We look forward to welcoming everyone back into our sanctuary in 2022 to learn from some amazing speakers and inspiring individuals.


Education & Speakers

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and out of an abundance of caution, we have turned our 2021 festival into a drive-thru experience over three days - April 16, May 14, and June 11.  While we won't be able to welcome our favorite speakers to our sanctuary, we are still committed to sharing the vastness of Jewish history, customs, holidays, and traditions, and the importance of giving back through social action efforts.  


Mitzvah Alley Charity Partners

The Jewish Cultural Festival’s Mitzvah Alley highlights organizations in the community whose sole purpose is to help others. Mitzvah is the Hebrew word for commandment, referring to a moral deed performed within a religious duty or an expression of heartfelt sentiment as expressed in “you shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Leviticus 19:18). As we continue with the Jewish Cultural Festival, join us as we learn about the vital services provided by local organizations and how you can help those in need.  

We are truly grateful to all of our community partners and volunteers who worked hard to bring the best possible experience to all of our attendees in 2021.  If you would like to support Temple Israel, we encourage you to donate online to support our efforts to assist community members in need at this time.
