Last week's rain didn't stop the CU Jew Fest from a rocking good time.

CU Jew Fest 2011

AEPi Helping Serve Food at Jew Fest

Despite the rain on Wednesday, September 14 an estimated 250 CU students, faculty and community members came out for Jew Fest 2011. Chabad and the Jewish Student Association hosted the event with the help of the CU Cultural Events Board and other Jewish groups on campus.

The evening began with with a delicious Israeli dinner. It featured a wide variety of Israeli foods including knishes, pastrami sandwiches, pita and falafel, babka, rugelach, and matzah ball soup. There were also representatives from StandWithUs and a booth where students were able to write Rosh Hashanah postcards to their parents, wishing them a Shana Tovah.

The Moshav Band

After everyone was full we filed into the theater for the evening’s entertainment. The Moshav Band, originally from Israel now residing in LA, combine the sounds of Israeli music with that of American singers. Their upbeat songs kept everyone moving, bringing some people to their feet dancing. Alex Gelernter, a student at CU, decribed the band as “awesome” and “had an amazing time!” At the end of the night everyone went home from Jew Fest with a full stomach and a smile on their face.
