The Temple Emanuel Band, Choirs and Religious School invite you to join them for a morning of singing and celebration in memory of the music and legacy of Debbie Friedman, z’’l, on Sunday morning, January 24, at 10:45. The event is free and open to the public. Please bring your friends and your voices.
In addition to several iconic songs by Friedman, who died in 2011, songs by two generations of musicians who were influenced and inspired by her ability to bring a woman’s voice and perspective into late 20th century Jewish music, and to write accessible songs combining liturgy and social commentary, will be performed.
Jacob “Spike” Kraus, an up-and-coming singer/songwriter whose music is represented in the January concert, will spend the weekend of February 5-7 as musician-in-residence at Temple Emanuel. Highlights of the weekend include:
- February 5 at 6:30 pm – Family Shabbat Service featuring music by Spike Kraus with Rabbi Michael Farbman and members of the TE band.
- February 6 at 7:00 pm – Havdalah and concert by Spike Kraus with the TE band.
- February 7 at 10:30 am – Mini concert with students from the TE religious school.
All events during the Musician-in-Residence Weekend are free and open to the public. Spike’s first full-length studio album, “Shake Off the Dust,” will be available for sale after the concert.
