The Jewish Federation of Greater Portland will celebrate the achievements of its first century with a virtual party Nov. 7.
The original plan for the Jewish Federation's 100th anniversary celebration was to have a HUGE bash. Despite the limitations imposed by the pandemic, Federation is still planning a big bash – but the fun, laughter and dance party will be in the comfort of your home. Plus, everyone will receive a cute goodie bag in the mail.
The evening begins with a dance party led by DJ Ben on Zoom so everyone can see your friends. Attendees will receive a link to the virtual photo booth and can start sharing and downloading their photos as early as Thursday, Nov. 5, with the hashtag #jfgp100. Cocktails and nibbles are up to your imagination/creation.
The online fun then shifts to the online platform Vimeo with two great comedians – Carol Leifer and Elon Gold.
Stand Up Portland! will begin on Zoom at 6:30 pm for the dance party then shift to Vimeo for the headliners at 7 pm.
Registration is $18 per household. Register by Oct. 29 at jewishportland.org/centennialgala.
