Summary

The Shalosh Regalim are the three festival holidays of Passover, Sukkot and Shavuot, and traditionally during these holidays Jews traveled to Jerusalem to celebrate and pray with the High Priests of the First and Second Temple. Aptly named, the Regalim Festival is a street celebration in the charming neighborhood Nachlaot in Jerusalem during the intermediate days of Passover and Sukkot. The event features all kinds of music performances and activities, for both adults and children. There is a very local vibe to the festival, and individuals in the area are encouraged to participate and showcase their talents. The festival is organized by Yehuda Glanz, the esteemed Latin American Jewish musician known for his unique fusion of contemporary rhythms with traditional Jewish sounds.
