      Shalom Friends,

      This Monday evening begins the holiday of Pesach where we remember
      the back-breaking labor our anscestors were forced to do while
      enslaved in Egypt. We commemorate this by doing back-breaking labor
      in the kitchen. Just kidding! Pesach is a great time to celebrate-
      and there is no better way to celebrate than with music! Below you
      will find some great music events taking place during Pesach.

      The period between Pesach and Shavuos is known as Sefiras Ha'Omer
      (the counting of the Omer). During this time many do not listen to
      live music due to customs of mourning.
      For more information please see the essay entitled "no_music" @
      http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/NYCJewishMusic/files/essays/

      Wishing you a chag kasher v'sameach...happy and healthy Passover to
      all!
      ~Seth
