Kehila Kedosha Janina Synagogue and Museum (KKJ) will return to hosting its annual Greek Jewish Block Party on Sunday August 15 from 12-4pm. The festival, located at 280 Broome St., between Allen and Eldridge Streets, celebrates the unique Romaniote and Sephardic heritage of the synagogue.

The afternoon promises authentic kosher Greek foods and homemade Greek pastries, traditional Greek dancing and live Greek and Sephardic music, fun activities for the whole family.

They write: “While it won’t be as big as our usual festivals, we felt that it was important to bring together our community after being apart for so long. We will still have live Greek and Sephardic music, delicious kosher Sephardic food, a special Greek dance performance, and kids activities.”
