The Arts Committee of Temple Beth-El in Ithaca will conclude its annual Jewish film festival with “The Last Suit” on Thursday, August 22.

The annual Jewish Food Festival in Scranton will be held Sunday, August 18, through Thursday, August 22, at Nay Aug Park in Scranton. Opening day hours on Sunday, August 18, will be from 11:30 am-7 pm. Monday through Thursday, the hours will be from 11:30 am-2 pm  for lunch and 4-7 pm for dinner.
Organized by the Jewish Discovery Center, the free-admission event features ethnic food, entertainment, kids-zone play area, live DJ and daily specials.
The menu will feature an assortment of traditional “Jewish favorites” as well as Israeli and Middle Eastern food. There will also be a barbecue grill and a bakery tent to complement the celebration of ethnic kosher food.
The festival at Nay Aug Park will continue all week featuring daily grill specials. This year, the festival will offer takeout orders with curbside service. “Simply make your selections online or by phone and your order will be ready within 30 minutes – brought to your car,” said organizers of the event.
Nay Aug park, the city of Scranton’s largest park, grants residents and visitors “a touch of nature” amid the city landscape. Walking trails, picnic areas, kid-friendly rides, playgrounds, Olympic-sized swimming pools and a waterslide complex are among the attractions. The Everhart Museum is also located within the park. A gorge and waterfalls within the park have been named a National Natural Landmark. A pedestrian footbridge opened in 2007 to access parkland across the Roaring Brook.
