The Rady JCC announces its 2023 line-up for Tarbut: Festival of Jewish Culture, taking place October 21 to 28, 2023.
“Tarbut is a chance for individuals from all backgrounds to come and experience Jewish culture at its finest,” said Laura Marjovsky, Director of Programming at the Rady JCC as well as the 2023 Tarbut Festival Director. “We are so pleased once again to have great presentations in music, film, art, and comedy.”
This year’s lineup will feature Israeli live music, award-winning films, an art expo, and comedy. All programming takes place at the Asper Jewish Community Campus (AJCC), located at 123 Doncaster Street in Winnipeg, apart from a special opening night engagement at the West End Cultural Centre (WECC), located at 586 Ellice Avenue.
“We are in for an absolute treat on opening night with a concert featuring Israeli musician Gili Yalo,” Marjovsky continued. “He is one of the most intriguing musicians on the Israeli music scene right now, combining Ethiopian musical legacy with such genres as soul, funk, groove, and jazz. It will be the perfect kick-off to an amazing week of Jewish culture.”
Tarbut is presented by the Rady JCC and produced by Karla Berbrayer and generously supported by the Babs Asper Centre for Cultural Arts and The Asper Foundation. Additional festival supporters include the Jewish Federation of Winnipeg, the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba, United Way of Winnipeg, West End Cultural Centre, the Jewish Post & News, the Viscount Gort Hotel, and QDoc.
