The Workmen’s Circle and the National Yiddish Theater Folksbiene will be partnering with the Museum of Jewish Heritage for this year’s second annual Matzapalooza.

According to the Workmen’s Circle, a Jewish non-profit promoting social and economic justice, this year’s Matzapalooza festival will be held at the Museum of Jewish Heritage and boasts a marketplace of “artisan purveyors” of Passover foods, along with arts-and-crafts activities including make-your-own hagaddah and Elijah and Miriam cups.

A Yiddish Passover sing-along concert will be held by the singing duo of Jeff Warschauer and Deborah Strauss, and National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene Artistic Director Zalmen Mlotek. Songs will also be featured in Hebrew and English.

Tickets are $10 each, though admission will be free for children and grandchildren of Museum, Workmen’s Circle, and National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene members. The event will be held Sunday, April 2 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

The event will also feature an afikomen search party, as well as a photo booth allowing participants to dress up and pose as the Passover plagues.
