Will there be Kosher or vegetarian food?

What type of clothing is required?
Since it is an educational innovation festival, clothing must be comfortable to participate in any activity. February is a cold month in Mexico; we recommend
that you come dressed in several layers.
Where are we going to stay?
Some of the families in the Tarbut community, Vaad Hajinuj, and Universidad Hebraica will open their homes to receive guests, with the idea that guests will
get to know the community life in Mexico. There is also an option of staying at a hotel near the school at an extra cost. The quota in hosting homes is limited, and they will be assigned as they are requested. If the quota is exceeded in homes, they must register to stay at the hotel.
What are the available hotels? Is there a discount rate?
The host hotel is the Ventura Hotel & Suites in Interlomas. We have a special rate for EDUFEST TARBUT participants.
