Happy Rock N Roll Chanukkah in Newburgh


The Mama Doni Experience is a world to laugh, love, dance, and sing along with the inner Jewish child in all of us. Doni Zasloff (Mama Doni) is the leading singer, songwriter, author, and performer in Jewish entertainment for kids and families. With arms open wide, she invites audiences throughout the country to join her as she famously elevates ruach [(ru-ach) : spirit] to a whole new level.   At the heart of the Mama Doni experience is the long time collaboration between Doni Zasloff and husband Eric Lindberg. Together they tour the country as a duo and with their larger rock band playing over 100 dates a year.

“Doni is a rock ‘n roll rabbi, teaching the world about Jewish tradition,  and fun (which is not restricted by religious beliefs,)” said Newburgh Jewish Community Center  Executive Director Debbie Sanford

This concert was brought to the community by the Newburgh Jewish Community Center and the PJ Library. The event was funded by the Jewish Federation of Greater Orange County as part of a larger celebration at the Kol Yisrael campus in Newburgh.
