Frequently Asked Questions

What is Shir Madness?

Shir Madness is the celebratory event for L’Dor V’Dor, the annual fundraising campaign benefiting the students of the Galinsky Academy. This year, the event will be a community-wide Jewish music and arts festival.  “Shir” is the Hebrew word for song, and “Madness” because the event takes place during March Madness basketball tournament.

 

When is it?

March 22, 2020, starting at 12:30 until final encore (around 4:30/5 PM). 

 

Where is it?

Located at Beth Shalom Park at the Jacksonville Jewish Center. 

 

How much is it?

If purchased online before the event, entry is $18 per person ages 3 and up with or without a donation. $25 if purchased at the door. 

 

What does the ticket cover?

The ticket covers admission only. It does not include food/drink, raffle tickets, items for sale, auctions, etc. 

 

Where do I buy tickets?

Simply put, your money makes sure that every child, regardless of a family’s financial ability, receives a Jewish education. 

 

What if it rains?

The program will go on rain or shine. We will have tents. We consulted with a meteorologist and reviewed a 20-year history for that weekend and there is a very low chance of rain.

L'DOR V'DOR (From Generation to Generation)

It is not giving back, it is giving forward.  

There is only one way for the Jewish community to continue to thrive in North Florida. We must pass on what we know and what we hold dear to the next generation. No institution is better equipped to do that than Jewish Schools. For the children who are enthusiastically carrying on our traditions now and for the children who will follow in the years ahead, we owe it to them to provide an unmatched educational experience and an environment where Judaism can flourish. Your gift to our schools impacts a child for a lifetime. It impacts our community. It impacts our future as a people. 

Join us as we honor Arlene and Evan Yegelwel with the Rabbi David Gaffney Leadership in Education Award and the Jewish Community Alliance with the Community Partner Award.
