If there is proof that a tradition has taken root, this must be it: No sooner had the YM-YWHA of Union County’s ninth annual Jewish Fair and Expo ended this past Sunday than the organizers were talking about the next one.

Jani Jonas, the Y’s program director and a member of the organizing committee, declared, “We’re on next year for the 10th Jewish Fair and Expo anniversary — on Sunday, Nov. 20, 2011.”

As they have done every fall since 2001, people of all ages gathered at the Y on Sunday for kids’ crafts, talks, movies, music, choral singing, food, some pre-holiday shopping, and a lot of socializing.

As Jonas and others noted, the crowd was a little lighter than in some years — around 300. “But,” she said, “as always, the fair was a big success in accomplishing our goal: celebrating the history, culture, and traditions of our Jewish community and keeping our ‘presence’ strong.”
