The concert will also feature performances by the Moshav Band and YU’s own a cappella group, the Maccabeats.

Organized by Yeshiva University’s undergraduate student councils, the concert will benefit Kids of Courage, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children and young adults with serious medical diagnoses.

“It’s very hard to have one event that appeals to the entire YU student body,” said Yoni Kushner, president of the Yeshiva Student Union and organizer of the event. “However I feel this year, with the performers that we are bringing in, we have the possibility of drawing one of the largest student crowds in YU history.”
