Chassidic band “8th Day” releases song for upcoming ‘St. Charles Jewish Festival’

The Aug. 14th St. Charles Festival is sure to bring sights and sounds of Jewish life from around the world.


On Sun. Aug. 14, anchored by “8th Day,” the popular and groundbreaking Chassidic band, participants at the second annual “St. Charles Jewish Festival” will enjoy world-class live Jewish music. In advance of their St. Charles appearance, “8th Day” has released a new version of their hit song “Inner Flame,” with the following lyrics:

Summer in St. Charles… it’s where you want to be… to have the Jewish pride… celebrate community… come feel the joy, come feel the energy… you’ll find your soul; St. Charles Jewish Festival.

The West-Coast-based pop rock Jewish group is acclaimed for bringing a genuinely Jewish twist to the genre, and has been entertaining sellout crowds across the world since 2004.

“This is going to be our theme song and a little taste of the awesomeness that’s yet to come,” said Bassy Landa, who, together with her husband Rabbi Chaim Landa, directs the Chabad Jewish Center of St. Charles County, the organizers of the annual festival. “Drawing on the teachings and inspiration of the Rebbe [Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson] the music at the festival, much like our theme song, will focus on the themes of joy, gratitude and positivity.”

Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy other live Jewish music, as well as kosher food, and learn about Jewish culture and traditions in a fun and meaningful way. Admission, music, and family activities are free. Food will be for sale.

Festival sponsors and partners include: Wright Construction Services, Inc.; Super Cubes LLC; Jewish Federation of St. Louis; OPO Startups; First State Bank; City of Saint Charles; City of O’Fallon; City of St. Peters; Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce; O’Fallon Chamber of Commerce & Industries; Cottleville Weldon Spring Chamber of Commerce; Western St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce.
