The 25th Jewish Music Festival invites you to share our joy as our friend Dan Plonsey becomes a Bar Mitzvah!

Thanks to a generous matching grant of $7,500 from The East Bay Community Foundation’s Fund for Artists, the JMF commissioned a new multimedia piece by Bay Area composer Dan Plonsey and choreographer Eric Kupers to premiere as part of our silver anniversary season. Thanks to your love of the arts and willingness to give, we have reached our goal.

Save the Date: July 11, 2010 and come celebrate Dan Plonsey’s Bar Mitzvah
