It’s that one day of the year when Melbourne’s Jewish community come together to celebrate Jewish culture – the traditional, the new and the emerging – in a vibrant and fun festival for all ages.
On Sunday, March 15, Elsternwick will come alive with In One Voice, a street party where visitors can immerse themselves in the sights, sounds and tastes of one the world’s oldest and richest cultures.
This year, In One Voice will showcase some of Australia’s most exciting and innovative musicians, artists, foodies and community groups for the Elsternwick community to enjoy.
Here’s what you can expect from the event:
Savour the spectrum of Jewish cuisine, from classic Kosher staples, to vegan options and Jewish fusion, at a range of stalls manned by vendors as colourful and exotic as their produce.
Headlining the festival’s concert is international futuristic-funk-klez band YID!, who will be joined on stage by soulful klez-quartet ESKE, and Yoni Giraffe, returning to In One Voice with a modern reworking of Hebrew classics.
Festival favourite, Vered Harel and her unforgettable vocal talent will return, and of course the much loved local school and community choirs and bands.
Learn to cook like a pro or simply come along to sample some of the best food in Elsternwick Village.
The Nosh Tent is where cooking and food meet community work. It’s where organisations such as Subbotnik, which celebrates the rich cultural heritage of Russian Jews, and Our Kitchen Village, which makes nutritious Shabbat and weekly meals for those doing it tough, will conduct cooking demonstrations and workshops while explaining the vital role they play in the Jewish community.
The littlest festivalgoers are in for a real treat at this year’s carnival themed Kids’ Zone, which will have youth group activities, games, face painting, virtual reality, and interactive demonstrations.
With One Aim
In One Voice also provides a platform for the many Jewish social groups actively seeking change to make a better world.
Speakers from environmental, political, social, youth, sport, women’s and cultural groups will share their stories and messages and raise awareness about what has been and can be achieved, when the Jewish community come together In One Voice.
