Jewish Arts Festival

Saturday Nov. 13-Sunday Nov. 14 @ Jeanné Wagner Jewish Community Center


The Jewish Arts Festival is a testament to the thriving Jewish community in Salt Lake City. The annual event draws Jews and non-Jews alike to enjoy the vibrancy of Jewish culture.

The festival has morsels for the whole family to enjoy. Browse the Vendor Village for arts, crafts and other goodies, and the Book Fair for works on Jewish culture and history. Enjoy a variety of music, including klezmer music, rock fusion from Jahnre and the L’Chaim Russian Jewish Choir. Sample falafel, latkes, matzah ball soup and other traditional foods. The Kids’ Art Yard includes activities for children to decorate dreidels, Star of David necklaces, Chanukah door hangers and more.

Topping off the festival, two adult workshops are scheduled: “Death, Love and Rescue in the Wake of the Holocaust” and “Jews, Blues and Rock & Roll.”
