“For there is always light,
if only we’re brave enough to see it.
If only we’re brave enough to be it.”
Amanda Gorman closed her moving inaugural poem with these inspiring words. Truly we have been in a dark time, a time of pandemic. And while we are far from the end of this dark time, hopefully we can do as Ms. Gorman implores us: see the light, be the light.
We will do our best on Saturday, March 13th, Saturday evening, for our 4th Annual Benefit for Music at Temple Israel, via Zoom (details which will be shared upon registration)
The Beatles’ Here Comes the Sun, This Little Light of Mine, REM’s Everybody Hurts, traditional Jewish texts Oseh Shalom and Or Zarua (Light is Sown for the Righteous), and more will all fulfill the message of the great Leonard Cohen song, Anthem: “There is a crack in everything—that’s how the light gets in.”
The benefit concert will raise funds to support music programming at Temple Israel, and will feature: Cantor Randall Schloss, Leah Schloss, The Afro-Semitic Experience, Miho Sasaki, Jim Weingast, Jeremy Klein, David Sparr, Marius Van Den Brink, Dani Saril, and many of the talented and diverse Temple Israel family of musicians.
