The 2012 Greater Chicago Jewish Festival comes to St. Paul Woods in Morton Grove on Sunday June 10.
The event features three live performance stages presenting music and storytelling, an art fair, Kosher food fair, a petting zoo and family entertainment. Set against the backdrop of beautiful St. Paul Woods this year's event promises to attract large numbers of Jewish fun seekers from across the Chicago area.
The festivities run from 11a.m-6p.m and it looks like the weather’s going to cooperate. A little hot maybe, but lots of shade. Parking? Yes of course they thought of that. There will be plenty of free parking and a short walk or shuttle bus to the entrance. You might want to take Metra and walk a few blocks to the woods from the Morton Grove stop, or catch the shuttles that have been thoughtfully arranged to drive back and forth from the station.
Running for more than 30 years, this bi-annual festival might be the largest event of the year that draws the Chicago Jewish community together. This year the focus is on local performers or those with Chicago roots. The headliner is Steven Page, formerly of Barenaked Ladies,, along with many other well-known local artists, including our particular faves, Rabbi Joe Black and the Maxwell Street Klezmer Band.
Schools, synagogues, camps, charitable organizations and activist groups serving the community will be on hand at the Organization Fair; they’re the backers for this event and they deserve your thanks and support.
