They say all good things are worth waiting for. That’s certainly how organizers of the second Sababa Jewish Arts and Cultural Festival are approaching this year’s event, after postponing it twice, in 2020 and 2021, because of the COVID-19 pandemic... Word on the street has it that the Jewish Community Relations Council’s social justice, Jewish values-themed booth will be hard to top, though the Friends of Israel Scouts are teaching knot tying and the Jewish Light will be awarding prizes for correctly answering age-appropriate current events and trivia questions... This year’s free festival takes place Sept. 18 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the parking lot outside Simon Hall at Washington University, near the south entrance to the campus. Festival goers can park for free nearby at the underground Danforth University Center Garage, 6475 Forsyth Blvd. Festival co-chairs are Diane Balber and Blair Kweskin.

Cultural Leadership, a local nonprofit that educates middle and high school students to recognize and resolve issues of privilege and injustice through the lens of the African American and Jewish experience, will honor Rabbi Daniel Bogard, Bob Fox and Cheryl Adelstein at its Golden Gala on Tuesday, Sept. 15... Adelstein, the deputy director of the Jewish Community Relations Council of St. Louis, will be presented with one of two Troublemaker of the Best Kind Awards for Education Equity, honoring community members and organizations dedicated to shining a light on critical social issues and generating positive change.
