A great success in 1995, the Valley Jewish Festival is well on its way to becoming--you should excuse the expression--a tradition! The Second Biennial Valley Jewish Festival will be held Sunday on the campus of Pierce College in Woodland Hills. According to festival spokesman Richard Macales, the local fest is "the largest outdoor gathering of its kind west of Chicago." At least 35,000 people are expected to attend.
