Celebrating the Jewish Songwriters who created Broadway's Songbook
Saturday, February 3rd, 7:30 p.m. at Sinai Synagogue
For the past 3 years, Sinai has been fortunate to have multi-talented cantor and performance artist, Eyal Sherf, travel from Israel to South Bend to help lead our High Holiday services. Now, we want to share him with the whole community!
Join us on Saturday, February 3rd at 7:30 p.m. as Eyal puts on his show: "Shtetl to Broadway," at Sinai Synagogue. Eyal will be accompanied by musical director Stephen Borsuk for a rousing tribute to the Jewish songwriters of musical theatre. This is a performance NOT to miss!
Tickets are $18 for adults, and $6 for students (under 18 years). Doors open at 7 p.m., concert starts at 7:30 p.m.
Richard Rodgers, George and Ira Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Stephen Sondheim, Kurt Weill, and the list goes on – it is the list of composers and lyricists who created some of the most enduring American musicals. And what else do they have in common? Yes, all are members of the tribe.
Join us for this special concert celebrating the Jewish contribution to America’s seminal art form. Expect to hear some of the most well-known songs as well as lesser known gems from the American songbook and musical theatre. We will also devote some moments to exploring how the very tunes that those genius writers heard in shul - some of them we all still sing – how they found their way onto the musical stage. And sure enough, the program will be interspersed with a few liturgical treasures – compositions set to some of our most cherished prayers.
