Whether you're looking for new music or connecting with your Jewish roots, the DCJCC's 14th annual Washington Jewish Music Festival will have you covered.

On Sunday night, world-renowned Israeli singer Achinoam Nini, or Noa, kicks off the fest with a performance at the Cultural Arts Center in Silver Spring. That's followed by Israeli-African fusion group Mika Karni and Kol Dodi playing at Sixth & I on Wednesday and a capella YouTube stars the Maccabeats performing on Thursday at the Jewish Primary Day School of the Nation's Capital. A diverse slew of shows, music and a movie screening continue through May 11.
