At each Festival, continuous entertainment is provided on four stages, Artists display their beautiful creations, the Kosher Food Fair has delicious food from many different cussines, children have Hands-On activities, and many orgainizations share their message. We are now planning for Festival 2014
The Festival is produced by the Jewish Production Organization for Cultural Events and Theater (P.O.C.E.T.). The Jewish P.O.C.E.T. is run by an all-volunteer Steering Committee which consists of professionals in the fields of art, music, theater, dance, radio, television, communications, community relations, education, engineering, finance and law. The Steering Committee is always looking for volunteers. Call: 847-933-3000.
More than 200 volunteers help us on the day of the Festival, selling pop and t-shirts and working as cashiers and in the information booths. While producing the Festival takes a tremendous amount of work during the months leading up to the big day, we could not physically run the various activities without the help of these volunteers.
The Festival's budget is raised through private donations from people like you. There is no question that without these donations, the Festival would not happen. Whether you are able to contribute a lot, or a little, every dollar helps. We can now take donations online.
ALL of the revenues from the Festival go directly toward producing the event. No group benefits financially and no individual receives a salary from this Festival. The Festival is a community event, not a commercial event.
