Therefore, the Long Island and New York Regions of NCSY will host Roots Fest, a music festival that includes six of the freshest bands in Jewish music: Yaakov Chesed, Aryeh Kuntsler, PHP, Gavriel Kahane, Sefarad and Aish Tamid. The concert will take place at Lawrence Middle School on -Saturday, March 15 at 9:00 pm. All proceeds will go to NCSY programming that targets Jewish “root” awareness.
