The 46th annual Jewish Music and Arts Festival took place Sunday in Valhalla.
The event at Kensico Dam featured plenty of Judaica to choose from, like Shabbos candles, earrings and other items.
Festival attendees also had a variety of art to purchase and there was even a puppet show for the kids.
There were also books related to Judaism.
"We provide free books to any family who wants to sign up once a month. Many of our books do have holiday themes. However, a lot of our books are simply centered around Jewish values," said Carrie Kirschner-White, of the PJ Library.
The event was particularly important as antisemitism in New York has gone up 24% since 2021.
"It's scary. I start thinking about should I move to another country? Should I move to Israel? And I love this country," said resident Michael Brown. "It's a wonderful place. It's given my family and I so much opportunity and to worry about these things is horrible."
