Description

The 28th Jewish Music Festival's spring season takes place March 2-9, 2013 in Berkeley, CA.

Can Jewish culture be revived in Poland, of all places? Should it be? Explore these questions at the 28th Jewish Music Festival.

The mission of the Jewish Music Festival is to present music that celebrates the Jewish experience and explores what it means to be Jewish in a multicultural world. The Festival produces creative and entertaining programs, challenges stereotypes, and fosters engagement with the broader community.
