Will Mark 25th Annual Jewish Music Festival, Sponsored by National Jwb

The 25th annual Jewish Music Festival, to be held from Feb. 1 through April 2, 1969, will celebrate a quarter century of Jewish music in America, the National Jewish Welfare Board, sponsor of the event, announced today.

Rabbi Avraham Soltes, chairman of the JWB’s National Jewish Music Council, said the annual celebration of the event stimulated wide interest in Jewish music and kept alive “appreciation for works which are part of the Jewish heritage.” He said that during the festival Jewish music programs will be presented by hundreds of American Jewish community centers, synagogues, Hillel foundations, Hadassah chapters, lodges of B’nai B’rith and chapters of the National Council of Jewish Women.
