Jewish Summer Festival To Start

SARATOGA SPRINGS — The Saratoga Jewish Cultural Festival begins its sixth year of programming with a generous grant from the Jewish Federation of Northeastern NY and sponsorships from Whiteman, Osterman and Hanna and the Trustco Bank Corporation.

The season will start off on June 4 with the exciting musical quartet Golfstrom with ethnic and other music from around the world.

The festival, stared in 2012, was the vision of a collaborative partnership that came to fruition among organizations and programs in Saratoga and surrounding communities to demonstrate the vitality of Jewish life in the region.

Beginning with a modest three programs and three organizations it is now 12 programs and three times the number of partners including Congregation Shaaray Tefilla, Temple Beth El and Hadassah of Glens Falls; Congregation Beth Shalom of Clifton Park, Congregation Shaara Tefilla and Temple Sinai of Saratoga Springs, Chabad of Saratoga Springs and Clifton Park; and the Office for Jewish Student Life at Skidmore College.

With the release of its 2017 schedule there is now a diverse series offered in multiple locations from Glens Falls to Clifton Park during the summer months between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

This year’s programming includes films, panels, vocal and instrumental music, lectures, ethnic kosher food and family entertainment. Performances will be at diverse sites.
