Child Life Society was created to help make life for Jewish children with Cystic Fibrosis (CF) normal and enjoyable. CF is a degenerative, genetic disease that significantly afflicts Jewish families more than other ethnic groups. Children with CF suffer lifelong breathing difficulties due to the constant, heavy buildup of thick mucus in their lungs. There is no present cure. Child Life Society provides desperately needed funds to pay for medical equipment, vitamins and food supplements, home care assistance, therapeutic respite, and emotional support. This evening of uplifting music is free to listen to and to watch, with a suggested donation to this wonderful organization. For more information and to donate, visit www.childlifesociety.org.
Matzav.com is a leading Jewish news website, featuring breaking Jewish and world news, entertaining videos and much more, catering to the global frum community. Matzav.com was the first frum website to introduce the concept of live Jewish music webcasts and will be hosting this year’s event again, building on their past successes.
Shua Kessin began his musical career in his youth and, in his teenage years, found himself strongly influenced and inspired by the music of Reb Shlomo Carlebach. Shua has since become one of the world’s most noted mavens of Shlomo’s music, amassing unparalleled knowledge of Carlebach’s music. Shua is held in high esteem by many of the great names in the Jewish music industry and is no stranger to the stages of Europe, Canada, Israel and the United States.
