Mentalist Sidney Friedman to headline Federation Main Event

By Stephanie Smartschan
JFLV Director of Community Development and Operations

You are invited for an interactive, exclusive experience for the whole family which will take place live in your home. And, specifically, in your own mind. 

Yes, by special arrangement, the country's leading mentalist Sidney Friedman, as seen on numerous TV shows such as The Today Show, 20/20 and The View, will perform his extraordinary feats of mind at the Jewish Federation’s Main Event on Oct. 25 at 7 p.m.

Friedman packed the JCC auditorium back in 2009, and this time, he’s got a brand new act fit for a virtual audience. He will interact with participants via Zoom with what can only be described as a demonstration of extraordinary telepathy and his unique musical mindreading ability. Sidney will literally read your mind from 1,000 miles away!

This show is a celebration of life and our community and will kick start the Federation’s 2021 Annual Campaign for Jewish Needs. As we learn to connect in new and exciting ways, Friedman will interact and share in an experience that is meaningful, allowing us to feel present, capturing a moment in time where, together, we will all make the impossible possible.

Friedman is a national best-selling author with his book “Your Mind Knows More Than You Do”  which reached #1 on Amazon. Hoda Kotb of The Today Show exclaims, "We love Sidney!“  The Chicago Tribune states Sidney is ”the master of all things psychic."  Forbes calls him "the mentalist to the stars."

There is no cost to attend, but a campaign pledge is required and may be made that evening.
