2020 Jewish Heritage Festival rescheduled for April 25
March 27, 2020
DAYTONA BEACH—The 2020 Jewish Heritage Festival scheduled for Sunday, March 29, 2020 at The Casements in Ormond Beach, Florida, has been postponed until April 25, 2021 due to the pubic health concerns surrounding the COVID-19 coronavirus.
“Taking into account recommendations from Governor DeSantis and many public health officials to cancel large gatherings for the foreseeable future, we decided that it was in the best interests of the Festival volunteers, entertainers, participants, vendors and Festival-goers to move the Festival until next year,” said Jeffrey Bigman, President of the Jewish Heritage Festival.
The rescheduled Festival will again feature nationally acclaimed entertainment, Kosher, Israeli and Jewish-style food, Israeli and Judaica artists and vendors, Jewish Organization booths, and exhibits including a Holocaust Memorial and Jewish Hall of Fame. Guest speakers will present interesting and moving discussions inside The Casements. Children’s entertainment will be available throughout the day including matzoh baking, inflatables, face painting, a petting zoo, and the famous camel rides.
Included in the 2021 Festival will be an area reserved for a Health Fair, where attendees can obtain valuable information on health and wellness from area providers.
The Festival wouldn’t be possible without the support of their Grand Sponsor - the Endowment Committee of the Jewish Federation of Volusia and Flagler Counties.

It intertwines the sounds, sights, and spirit of Jewish culture and brings together every facet of the Jewish Community, young and old, singles and families, regardless of their religious and cultural background.
