Celebrations | Mitzvah Faire brings vendors to Palo Alto

Sign up for Weekday J and get the latest on what's happening in the Jewish Bay Area.

With invitations, catering and entertainment to worry about, planning a bar or bat mitzvah is no small task. The organizers of the second annual “Mitzvah Faire” aim to make that easier — at least for those who attend the free event at the Sheraton Palo Alto Hotel  on Sunday, Jan. 27.

The fair, which runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., will feature local vendors such as event planners Glow Event Design, A Gala Event and Simcha Sisters, florists, designers and balloon artists, photographers, Judaica artisans (such as Tallits by Sharon) and others.

Hors d’oeuvres will be served, and baked goods from Debbie’s Rugelach and Crokantie will be available for sampling. Venues represented in addition to the Sheraton will be the Westin Palo Alto, Four Seasons Hotel Silicon Valley and Toll House Hotel.

The Sheraton is located at 625 El Camino Real in Palo Alto. For more information, call (650) 328-2800 ext. 7005.
