Mark those calendars: the annual Egg Rolls & Egg Creams Festival is celebrating its 14th year at the Eldridge Street Synagogue. As per protocol, tourists and locals alike will be treated to cross-cultural delights, by way of food and activities, that capture the unique confluence of Jewish and Chinese tradition in this neighborhood. Party time! Eggcellent!

Apart from the namesake eats, festival entertainment will include the usual fun: musical performances, Yiddish and Chinese lessons, Mah Jong, challah braiding, egg roll making, and tours of the 1887-vintage Eldridge Street Synagogue.

The free block party is set for Sunday, June 8, from 12 to 4pm.
