A Celebration of our Diverse Community

Thursday, August 10, 2023

A fabulous evening awaits! In alignment with our mission to “celebrate and honor Maine’s Jewish immigrants in the context of the American experience” and to “build bridges of appreciation and understanding with people of all backgrounds,” we invite you to join us for a night of fashion, food, and fun to celebrate Our diverse community.

The evening will begin with a grazing table featuring finger foods from around the world, a 50/50 raffle, and entertainment by the the Maine Squeeze Accordion Ensemble. We will then follow with an a capella performance by Rwandan pop sensation Clarisse Karasira, followed by a runway show showcasing Maine Jewish, immigrant, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ fashion designers and models. For a sweet ending, we will host a live auction along with a decadent dessert buffet. Join us for this cultural extravaganza in support of the Maine Jewish Museum!
