Maccabeats Kick Off Jewish Life Festival

Written by 
FEB. 28, 2012 -- The week-long Festival of Jewish Life will start with a song and offer numerous and diverse ways to experience and celebrate Jewish culture.

A capella singing sensation the Maccabeats will kick off the festival on Sunday, March 18, at 2 p.m. at the JCC Staenberg Family Complex gymnasium. These amazing Yeshiva University students gained international exposure via Youtube, and have already attracted ticket-buyers from across the Midwest.

The festival is open to all, and includes films and discussions, cooking and yoga, mezuzah making, brown bag lunch and learns with rabbis emeritus, field trips to cultural institutions, food and wine sessions, and the Safrai Art Gallery from Israel, displaying art for perusal and for purchase.

"Jewish culture, art and heritage can have a powerful and positive impact on one's life," said Rabbi Brad Horwitz of the JCC. "The Festival of Jewish Life is an amazing opportunity for people from all walks of life to participate in engaging activities and walk away enriched, connected and energized. It is accessible to all people, no matter interest or background and should be a wonderful way for our community to come together."

The complete festival schedule is available online at stlouisfestivalofjewishlife.com.

Advance tickets for the Maccabeats are strongly recommended, and may be purchased at brownpapertickets.com or by calling Diane Maier at 314-442-3190.
