2012 Greater Chicago Jewish Festival - Judaic Art by Jackie Olenick, 21 May 2012 [cached]
Michael M. Lorge
"We started the Festival in 1980, partially to explore evolving expressions Jewish identity in America and partially to demonstrate that as a community we can gather not just when there is a need to respond to community crisis", explains Michael Lorge, founder and chair of the Festival. The Greater Chicago Jewish Festival has become the largest event in the Chicagoland Jewish community and the longest running Jewish Festival in America. People travel from around the United States to be part of the daylong, all volunteer, celebration.
"We create a kind of town square of Jewish Chicago, where people meet, sing and eat and get to appreciate Jewish culture", says Lorge. "It is just a kick to throw a party for 20,000 folks and know that for that day everyone gets along and enjoys the music, food, dance and art", he adds.
