Hundreds of people made their way Sunday to Temple Israel in Dayton for its annual Jewish Cultural Festival.

This is the seventh year Temple Israel, 130 Riverside Drive, has hosted the free event. There was food, art and live entertainment.

Most importantly, organizers said it was a chance to put Jewish culture on display and to educate people about their faith.

“We invite everyone from the Miami Valley to come in and experience Judaism through food, sights, sounds, kids activities ... even a petting zoo,” said Courtney Cummings, one of the festival’s organizers.

Temple Israel has been a part of the Dayton community for more than 150 years.
