The Festival is a community event, not a commercial event.  It is produced by the Jewish Production Organization for Cultural Events and Theater (Jewish P.O.C.E.T.)  The Jewish P.O.C.E.T. is run by an all-volunteer Steering Committee which consists of individuals in all fields necessary to produce the Festival.  All of these funds are treated as “community funds” and are exclusively to produce the Festival and other Jewish music events.
