On Sun., May 31, Romaniote and Sephardic Jews celebrated their unique heritage at the Greek Jewish synagogue Kehila Kedosha Janina, at 280 Broome St., between Eldridge and Allen Sts., at the first-ever Greek Jewish Festival. Five live bands played Greek, Sephardic, Balkan and Israeli music. Also part of the festivities and fun were traditional kosher Greek Jewish food, homemade Greek pastries, a marketplace full of vendors, and arts and educational activities for kids. Visitors could take tours of the landmark synagogue building, constructed in 1927.
