JCC Maccabi ArtsFest® alum Brett Loewenstern sang a soulful version of “Let It Be” in his audition during Hollywood Week on American Idol, and it kept him in the competition. The Boca Raton teen was first up, and he seemed relaxed and confident, even though he reported he was “shaking in his pants.”
Brett participated in several JCC Maccabi ArtsFests, starting when he was 13. The program gives Jewish teens the chance to spend a week in intensive arts workshops in various disciplines and culminates in a grand performance. This summer, ArtsFest, along with the JCC Maccabi Games®, will take place in Israel for the very first time.
