A lively festival for a chilly spring day

“Hop, cross, turn,” dance teacher Joan Saliman said to a group learning an Israeli dance at Congregation B’nai Chaim in Morrison on Sunday morning.

With music supplying a steady beat, the dancers moved across the room with fast-paced steps and turns.

Israeli dance was just one of many activities that people enjoyed at the congregation’s first Israeli cultural festival.
