An Afternoon of Song

You are cordially invited to enjoy an afternoon of beautiful and inspiring music from across the Jewish world.

On Sunday, December 4, 2022, starting at 4:00 p.m., our own Cantor Risa Wallach and her special musical guests will offer songs by composers from Israel and the Diaspora that represent the variety and richness of Jewish repertoire, from traditional to contemporary, from liturgical texts to popular song.


Joining Cantor Wallach in concert will be Cantor Jennifer Benrey, Rabbi Cecelia Beyer, Cantor Jeff Warschauer and Deborah Strauss. Accompanying the artists will be Cantor Wallach’s father, Dr. Laurence Wallach, on the piano, and Kathy Shanklin, also on the piano. Bios of the performers can be found here. A copy of the event flyer can be found here.


Prior to the concert itself, we invite you to join us at a special reception starting at 3:00 p.m. Meet and greet the cantor and musical guests, and get reacquainted with your fellow congregants after the long pandemic solitude. You’ll enjoy offerings of wine, cheese, crudités, and other hors d’ouevres as well as performances by our own Tefillah Band and youth choir, Sufganyot.
