ShalomFest celebrates Jewish culture in Greenville


GREENVILLE, SC (WSPA) – Jewish food, music and culture will be in the spotlight for ShalomFest 2017.

The free festival will be held Saturday at the Temple of Israel in Greenville.

The event features Jewish food including bagels, corn beef sandwiches and pastries.

Rabbi Jeremy Master told 7News that food is one of the best ways to connect with the community and teach them about Jewish culture at the same time.

There will also be music and dancing as well as demonstrations of Jewish life celebrations including a Bar Mitzvah, a Passover seder and a Jewish wedding.

The festival will also feature a panel to discuss Julius Rosenwald, a Jewish philanthropist who changed our nation by building schools to help African-Americans in the South in the early 1900s.

ShalomFest is free to attend and will be held from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at 400 Spring Forest Road in Greenville.
