The event will be hosted by a dynamic duo, comedians Tracy Soren and Jessie Jolles, who will be leading trivia games like “So You Think You’re Jewish.” Activities and craft booths will provide additional entertainment for all ages. On the main stage, Klezmer musicians Howard Leshaw and the Klezmer Swing Orchestra will perform, while local celebrities and audience members will be dancing in the street.
