LimmudFest Saturday Night featuring Distant Cousins

After a beautiful shabbat spent worshiping, learning and celebrating Jewish culture, LimmudFest’s special Saturday Night programming moves to the newly expanded Uptown JCC. This year, after a musical Havdalah, we will open the doors to the entire community for a live performance from Distant Cousins.

 

 

Distant Cousins is Duvid Swirsky, Dov Rosenblatt and Ami Kozak, Los Angeles-based songwriters and producers who have been lighting up live audiences nationwide with their energized performances. In addition to releasing two critically acclaimed albums, their music has been featured in films (This Is Where I Leave You), commercials (Macy’s), and television shows (The Voice, American Idol and Reign). Their spirited chemistry and down-to-earth musical sensibilities should make for an enjoyable evening.

Or Choose An Award Winning Documentary

In true Limmud fashion, Saturday evening will be about choice as well. Concurrent to the live concert, we will be screening Shalom, Y’all, Brian Bain’s award-winning 2002 documentary on the unique and diverse life of Southern Jews. Bain covers 4,200 miles from small Mississippi Delta towns to sprawling Texas ranchlands, and uncovers a vibrant regional culture and hundreds of years of colorful history.

 

But That’s Not All

Then, stick around for The Rebbetzin Disco, a multimedia dance party experience like no other. A soundtrack of heart & soul, blues, funk, hip-hop, R&B, rock, indie disco, reggae and euro-pop is coupled with immersive visuals that will stir up your body and your soul, sending you to seventh heaven!

This community event begins at 8:30PM on Saturday, March 17 and is free and open to the public. Please encourage your friends, even if they are not yet Limmudnicks, to join us for an amazing evening at the Uptown JCC. Light refreshments will be provided.
