Sheldon Low Rocks the J!
Rocker Sheldon Low had families dancing in the aisles at the JCC during a lively concert. More than 120 people out to hear the famous Jewish performer. Our Jewish Teen Interns even joined Low on stage for a few numbers! The favorite? Tikkun Olam, a song about making the world a better place. See you next summer, Sheldon!
