It will be great to be together again in song, to see and purchase art, to enjoy Kosher food, see all of the Organizations of Chicago and to enjoy family activities from the Jewish day schools of our community.
In addition to the performances for which the Festival is renowned including our Israeli music on the stages, this year we will have a “Moment for Ukraine.” We will reach out to support those who face atrocities, whose human dignity is in jeopardy and who choose to defend themselves. Cantor Pavel Roytman will lead a set of Ukrainian music with Ukrainian musicians and the Consul General of Ukraine will join us. We will also raise donations for the JUF Humanitarian Relief for Ukraine. Add your voice in their support.
We are also honored to host the Wiesenthal Mobil Electronic Classroom for Tolerance.
See you at the Festival!
