Shir Chutzpah at Kabbalat Shabbat Services

On June 23, Shir Chutzpah, our own group of klezmorim, helped to welcome Shabbat with their unique blend of voice and instrumentation! (l. - r.: Paul Plotnick, Paul Gherson. Linda Kingsbury, Cantor Isabel Kopstein, Rabbi Seth Sternstein, Eric Frankfort, Mike Mirsky and Bob Stone) The event was preceded by a BBQ dinner sponsored by Men's Club.

On the evening of April 24, 2017, members of the YJC community gathered to commemorate the Shoah.  This year's program focussed  on how several descendants of Nazis have come to grips with their legacy.
