Moshav feat. MATISYAHU to Headline Jewlicious X

The Moshav Band feat. MATISYAHU epic combination reunion will be this year’s headline act at our 10th Annual Jewlicious Festival! They rocked Jewlicious 6 and the 1st Annual Night of Unity. They are back together for our 10th. (Can you believe this – ten years???)

If you have never been to this totally Jewlicious weekend, its a combination of a conference, sleepover shabbaton, mini-music fest, and all around great winter weekender with hundreds of other Jewish young adults on a historic ship the RMS Queen Mary, docked in Long Beach harbor with ocean views and breezes.

Matisyahu will also be joining Jewlicious for the entire Shabbos.

Great other performers and speakers are booked and will be announced shortly.

Don’t miss this chance to buy your ticket packages before the prices go up on Feb. 1st! Prices from $121 for hotel, food, programming for 3 days and 2 nights. Really.


Everybody Look: Jewlicious Festival is on a Boat

Some say it’s haunted. Some say it’s a masterpiece of Art Deco decor. Some say it is one of the finest ocean going liners ever built in the 20th Century. Whatever you want to believe about the RMS Queen Mary, it is one of the coolest places to do a fest. Roam the amazing decks and sumptuous halls. Enjoy bars, and views. Take the haunted boat tour. And of course, the original and compelling food, music and programming that Jewlicious Festival is famous for.

Before there were a bevy of imitators, Jewlicious Festival originated a unique blend of programming music and fun, that simply is unlike anything else at this price. Thanks to very generous donors, we can offer the Festival for a fee that is simply a steal. Everyone will be there – will you?
