Koleinu 2023 | HOME: Songs of Longing and Belonging
Eight Cantorial Voices Raised in Glorious Song
Featuring Five Bay Area Cantors
February 7, 2023
Join us in exploring HOME through a vast array of musical styles
as we gather safely together in song.
Buy your tickets today for the long-awaited return of Koleinu, a musical concert featuring eight cantorial voices joining together to address a theme that resonates to us all.
Silenced since the start of the pandemic, this new collaboration is dedicated to the concept of HOME: Longing and Belonging. In addition to Emanu-El’s Cantor Marsha Attie, Cantor Arik Luck and Cantor Emerita Roz Barak, Koleinu will feature Cantor Sandy Bernstein, Congregation B’nai Shalom, Walnut Creek; Cantor Yonah Kliger, Peninsula Temple Sholom, Burlingame; as well as returning favorites Cantor Joshua Breitzer, Congregation Beth Elohim, Brooklyn; Cantor Galit Dadoun-Cohen, Temple B’nai Or, Morristown, NJ; and Cantorial Soloist Jason McKinney, Temple Emanuel Winston Salem, NC. Musical Direction is by Cantor Jonathan Comisar, Hebrew Union College, NY.
HOME is a word charged with multiple meanings and inferences. It means different things to different people. It can be an edifice, a homeland, an ancestral heritage, a place of security, a place to rest, a welcoming center for family, a sense of peace and spirituality, as well as, for those who don’t have it and those who advocate for it, a human right. For many, our opinions have evolved over the past three years as we have been faced with staying home, of necessity to our health, well-bring, and that of our communities. We’ll explore all this in a vast array of musical styles from both Jewish and secular sources.
Koleinu is part of the Cantors Concert Series which is generously funded by Ingrid D Tauber and Frank Taforo.
