passover-paloozaPassover, one of the most celebrated Jewish holidays, starts at sundown on Friday, April 6 and continues for 8 days. This year, Streit’s, the famous New York City family-owned matzo company has teamed-up with the Mama Doni Band for a FREE concert with songs all about Passover. Your kids will jump and jam to the beat. We have been to several Mama Doni concerts and we always have a fantastic time.

This is not just any Passover concert. Families will receive a tour of the matzo factory, browse a Behrman House Publishers Jewish book fair, receive giveaways of matzos, macaroons, CDs, posters, and more!

Streit’s, the famous New York City family-owned matzo company, has been making matzos for 87 years, and, of course, Mama Doni loves matzo. In anticipation of Passover, Streit’s & Mama Doni created a new kids’ music video, “MISSION IMMATZOBLE,” all about the quest for Kosher for Passover food. I have included a link to the video in this post.

Mama Doni is the lead singer/songwriter of The Mama Doni Band, honored with a 2011 Parents’ Choice® Award for their recent release, Shabbat Shaboom, and winner of the Simcha Award for “Inspiring Joy Through Music” in competition with more than 100 bands from 15 different countries at the 2008 International Jewish Music Festival in Amsterdam. The band celebrates Jewish culture with irrepressible zest in its interactive family rock concerts filled with catchy pop songs that break the mold of traditional Jewish music. Quirky, offbeat, and unpredictable, The Mama Doni Band offers up a contagious and unexpected blend of reggae, rock, disco, Latin, klezmer and “Jewgrass” – all woven together with a hip Jewish sensibility.
