Rancho Park : Jewish Festival Planned
The yearly Jewish Festival will be held Sunday at Rancho Park, with attractions including a chicken soup-making contest whose winner will be awarded free round-trip tickets to Israel.
Organizers said the Los Angeles Jewish community’s campaign to raise $36 million to help resettle Soviet emigres in Israel will be featured during the daylong event, which begins at 10 a.m.
There will also be a kosher food pavilion, music acts, including Hedva, an Israeli singer, and folk dancing, and rides and games for children.
The festival is organized by the Jewish Community Centers Assn. of Greater Los Angeles, in conjunction with the Jewish Federation Council of Greater Los Angeles and the Israeli Consulate. For information, call (213) 938-2351, Ext. 221.
