“Shalom Sofia” Festival is the first of its kind Jewish street festival in Bulgaria. Its main idea is to acquaint Bulgarian society with Jewish life and culture by presenting different aspects of the life of this nation.
Jewish values, art, cinema, literature, music and cuisine come to Sofia by the Organization of Jews in Bulgaria “Shalom” and JDC Bulgaria, who are the initiators of this event. The aim of the organizers is to show that the Jews are an integral part of Bulgarian society. Through the festival the Jews in Bulgaria say “hello” to everyone. We hope that the festival will become a traditional event of the annual cultural program of the city. In Hungary the same festival enjoys great popularity and last year it took place for the first time in Romania.
