    When the Sixers take on the New York Knicks this Wednesday, it's Jewish Heritage Night at the Wachovia Center and spectators are in for a real treat.

    Grammy-nominated Jewish reggae artist, Matisyahu, will take the court post-game for a special concert just for 76er fans.

    Matisyahu, whose songs are inspired by the teachings of Judaism, wants his music to touch people and make them think.

    "Music taps into a very deep place and speaks to us in a way that regular words can’t,” says the artist.

    And the Sixers organization couldn’t agree more.

    "Jewish Heritage Night is an opportunity for the Jewish community to come together and enjoy a night of Sixers basketball, said Sixers Senior Vice President Lara Price. ”In addition, our fans can enjoy a free post-game concert.”

    The Sixers will also offer kosher food from the award-winning restaurant Max & David’s in the 11th Street Atrium.

    Tickets for Wednesday’s game are still available at, as are discounted ticket packages that include a 76ers T-shirt written in Hebrew (can be purchased at most synagogues around the city).
