The Mission of Sababa Music festival is to unite, inspire, and network the tri-state Jewish community, through the love of Shabbat, song, and music. Sababa Music Festival targets young adults/professionals to facilitate an arousal of the Jewish spark within each and every one of us in a new, fun, modern, and meaningful way. Just as music penetrates the hearts of its listeners, similarly should Jewish pride and a sense of unity permeate and warm our lives.
The model of Sababa Fest allows everyone involved to benefit; the musicians, vendors, sponsors, and most importantly, the attendees. Sababa’s approach is unique and innovative. Through camping, kosher food, fun music, and interactive activities, this exclusive 4 day festival will have an everlasting effect on everyone involved.
