SeaJAM Family Hanukkah Event & Concert
Sunday, December 9
Noon doors/Hanukkah games & art/food trucks/candle lighting
1 pm show
A concert full of rocking and rolling Hanukkah songs? It’s a Hanukkah miracle! Indie-pop band The LeeVees’ (Adam Gardner of the band Guster and Dave Schneider from the Zambonis) have taken up the important task of writing a bunch of rockin’ Hanukkah songs. Their debut album, “Hanukkah Rocks”, features humorous songs like “How Do You Spell Chanukkahh?” and the classic punk tune “Gelt Melts,” that ask tough questions set to fun, catchy music. There’s plenty of fist-pumping sing-along action and fun, kitsch factor for all kids, teens, and parents alike!

Dance+Live Music: birds sing a pretty song

Sunday, December 9 | 5 pm

A new dance performance piece combining dance, interactive media, and film from emerging choreographer/dancer Rebecca Margolick and composer/graphic artist Maxx Berkowitz. The work is an exploration of solitude, beauty, and chaos and the way in which technology and surveillance amplifies and minimizes connection and those states of being. Created at the 14th Street Y’s LABA: Laboratory for Jewish Culture, BSAPS was inspired by textual study.
