FIGURING OUT THE JEWISH FOUNDATION
AND LEGACY IN MUSCIAL THEATER
Coordinator: REBECCA RAMO

Beginning with the Yiddish theater in New York City's Lower East Side, Jews brought the sounds of their ancestors to New York's stages and delighted audiences. These “new” musical creations which Jewish musicians had fashioned from their familiar liturgies came to be identified as “American.” From Kurt Weill to George and Ira Gershwin to Rogers and Hammerstein, American musical theater derives from the traditions of Jews. In addition to describing this phenomenon, Rebecca will also present some musical interludes.

Snacks and drinks provided.

A TOUR OF PROVERBS/MISHLEI WITH NEIEL

Proverbs 16

The ways of a man may seem right to him,
But G-d understands our motives.
A man may plot his course,
But our steps are guided from above.
Truthful speech wins the favor of kings,
They love those who speak honestly.
The highway of the upright avoids evil;
One who preserves life watches his way.
A lawless man misleads his friend,
Making him take the wrong path.
Better to be forbearing than mighty,
To have self-control rather than to conquer a city.

A PERK FOR NEW MEMBERS

The Kohelet Board has voted to allow any new member to join without paying dues the first year. While this applies to any new member, we especially want to encourage young families to become members. Click here for the membership form.
