Raymond and Laya Kesner sing during a Havdallah ceremony at the I.J. and Jeanne Wagner Jewish Community Center in Salt Lake City on Saturday. The Havdallah ceremony is performed to usher out the Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath, a day of rest. The ceremony helped launch the Jewish Arts and Food Festival, which will take place through tonight. Tonight's festival activities will include music, crafts, shopping, food, films, dancing and storytelling.
