WORSHIP SCHEDULE

Koleinu* (Hear our Voices)
Songs of Resilience and Renewal

With Cantor Marsha Attie, Cantor Josh Breitzer, Cantor Leigh Korn, Cantor Arik Luck, Singer/Songwriter Chava Mirel, Cantorial soloist Jason McKinney, Cantor Jennifer Strauss-Klein and featuring our own Cantor Emerita Roslyn Barak. Musical direction by Jonathan Comisar.

Tuesday, February 6, 2018 | 7:00 pm | Martin Meyer Sanctuary 

Koleinu,*(Hear Our Voices) is an exciting musical collaboration that draws inspirations from a Jewish theme and explores the music that surrounds and inspires it.

Throughout Jewish history, our strength and resolve have proven both key to our survival and the flourishing of our culture. What drives our determination? Where does our sense of humor in the face of devastating opposition draw from? With this exciting performance, we’ll start with the ancient Israelites, and move all the way to 21st century America, rejoicing together at Jewish songs of resistance, confrontation, camaraderie, and triumph.

Generous support for this series comes from the Ingrid D. Tauber Fund.

 

Purchase your ticket  ($25 – $75)

With Koleinu,* each year we will draw inspiration from a different Jewish theme and explore the music that surrounds and inspires it.

Sunday, March 25 5:00 pm| Main Sanctuary | Congregation Emanu-El

World-renowned Grammy-winning superstars of the Klezmer world, the Klezmatics celebrate their 30th anniversary at Congregation Emanu-El as they bring us their music steeped in spiritualism and Eastern European tradition while incorporating themes of social justice.

In this concert, they join forces with Joshua Nelson, the Prince of Kosher Gospel, to explore the complexity of Jewish identity, Black identity, and humankind. Age-old Hebrew Passover songs will be melded with the African soul tradition, echoing the great stylings of Mahalia Jackson.

Our wonderful community partners from the Third Baptist Church Choir will join in this joyous celebration of freedom and fellowship. This exciting, soul-stirring concert is not to be missed and perfect for the whole family.
