On Sunday, August 19, Temple Beth Zion (805 Delaware Ave) and the Jewish Community Center (787 Delaware Ave) will host the inaugural Great Buffalo Jewbilee. The event is considered the first ever Jewish Summer Festival in Buffalo.
With German Festivals, Greek Festivals, a Burmese Water Festival, and just about every other culture celebrating their heritage, the stars were aligned for an occasion that celebrates the Jewish religion, the culture surrounding it, the people, the history, the food, the music, and even the architecture. There’s even the perfect setting, with two neighboring venues dedicated to preserving Jewish heritage and instilling pride in the community by enhancing integral aspects of health and family wellness.
Grant Golden will be reading stories to kids, and there will be a video showing of his most recent endeavor –Way Back When – 3 short plays based on the Book of Genesis.
