The San Fernando Valley Alliance announced Friday that it will stage a one-day Jewish cultural fair next May on the Pierce College campus that in effect will replace the now-dormant Jewish community festival once held on the Westside. Some see the projected $100,000 budget for the Valley Jewish Festival, which would surpass previous such festivals, as a reflection of the Jewish population's shift from the Westside to the San Fernando, Simi, Conejo and Santa Clarita valleys.
