…so far


Yes, we’re still accepting donations, but here is a list of folks and organizations that have helped make the Jewlicious Festival happen:

Deanna and Allen Alevy
Liz and Jim Breslauer
Barbara and Ray Alpert

All three of our Patrons are residents of Long Beach, California. They represent our core funders – people who come through year in and year out to bring the Festival to Long Beach. Thanks to their forward thinking generosity, the Jewish community of Long Beach has been put on the map as the only community thus far capable of getting it together to produce such a world-class event to the benefit of scores of young Jews in Orange County, LA, California and across the US. Of course I am less than objective in my assessment, but over the years I’ve really come to appreciate this spunky community. After all this time I can honestly say that I kind of have a bit of a crush on Long Beach. In many respects, these patrons are to blame. Sigh.

Long Beach Hillel
Jewish Student Services
