“Spectacular Wild Wonders Animal Show” with Mike Rossi.

Annual Community Purim Celebration

Early Jewish immigrants established a tight knit community in the downtown area of LaVilla between the 1880s and 1920s. Most of them were peddlers who came with nothing more than packs on their backs. In fact, prior to the 1930’s, Jacksonville’s Jewish population was the largest in Florida.

See a variety of scenes from the Jacksonville of Old.

Enjoy with live music and song, by the popular Choni Teitlebaum, a skilled and talented musician.

For the Kids, there will be a fabulous program, featuring Captain Character and his Ventriloquist puppet and magic show, along with balloon twisting and face painting.

The menu will include a delectable Southern buffet dinner with all the favorites including: Corn Bread, Chicken Fried Steak Bites, Oven Fried Southern Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Collard Greens, Southern Style Green Beans, Assorted Pies and more, that will have you coming back for seconds.

Prepare to be entertained, filled with food and enjoy a jolly Purim atmosphere.
