Exploring other cultures is fun, especially if you do it through food and music. The Jewish Food and Cultural Festival is May 15 at the River Market in downtown Little Rock. Some of the delicious traditional Jewish foods offered include corned beef sandwiches, lox, bagels and cream cheese, kosher hot dogs, rugelach, kabobs, falafel and Israeli salad.
Ethnic and religious booths showcase varied aspects of Jewish life from Arkansas to ancient Israel. Visitors can learn about Jewish holidays and life cycle customs, shalom from Israel, while a kid’s area with plenty of activities from face painting to jumping events keeps them occupied.
Entertainment throughout the day will include contemporary and traditional Jewish music performed by the B flats, the Klezmer Band, the Schenotes and other performers. Visit www.jewisharkansas.org or phone 501-663-3571 for additional information.
