Kehila Kedosha Janina Hosts Greek Jewish Festival Sunday

greek festival

Lower East Side History Month is ending with a bang this coming weekend. Kehila Kedosha Janina, the little Broome Street synagogue, is throwing its first Greek Jewish Festival on Sunday.

If you’re not familiar, it’s the only Romaniote synagogue in the Western Hemisphere. The building, located at 280 Broome St., was lovingly restored and is one of the few remaining architectural jewels of the old Lower East Side. The property is a New York City landmark.

The festival will include authentic kosher Greek foods and homemade Greek pastries, traditional Greek dancing and live Greek and Sephardic music, an outdoor marketplace full of vendors, arts and educational activities for kids and more.

It all takes place from noon-6 p.m. on Sunday on Broome Street between Allen and Eldridge streets.
