The event kicked off Saturday night with a celebration led by Kol Ami rabbi Ilana Schwartzman and a concert by Perry G. Fine and the Original Blue Healers.
Sunday was all about the Jewish artwork, lectures, books by Jewish authors, performers and four latkes for only $5. Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company performed to music by Jewish composers, and guests enjoyed a display of Janet Macoska's photos from her book Jews Rock! A Celebration of Rock and Roll's Jewish Heritage.

We'll have the "official" photos of the event in our People Pix section of the Web site asap.
In the meantime, here's some extra photos from this year's festival:
