The Guilford Green once again will host a celebration of Jewish life, drawing from several sourthern Connecticut communities, when the 14th Shoreline Jewish Festival is held on Sunday afternoon, July 14. There’s a lot to peruse, listen to and eat, with crafts and activities for kids.
The fest’s musical lineup also has a strong tradition, this year featuring Yoni Stokar & The Sixth Street Band (Jewish melodies with jam-band improv), Yiddishkeit Klezmer Ensemble (klezmer is irresistable and dance-friendly) and White Shabbos (Jewish lyrics with bluegrass/rockabilly music). Talking Hands Theater will present storytelling with puppets.
Artists and artisans will be selling a variety of Judaica, jewelry, clothing and artwork. Food-wise, kosher offerings will include hamburgers, hot dogs, falafel (an Israeli fried chickpea specialty), schwarma grilled chicken, potato knishes, homemade doughnuts, cotton candy and sno-cones.
Children’s activities also include inflatable bouncy fun, as well as Jewish-themed arts & crafts projects.
