Featured will be music from the centuries old traditions of the Jewish Wedding.
We will discuss and perform music for the Tish (Groom's feast table), the Badekn (veiling of the Bride), the Beveinen (bringing the Bride - and Groom to tears), the role of the badkhn (wedding jester/master of ceremonies), the march to and from the khupe (wedding canopy), serenading the mekhatonim (in-laws) on their way home, and much more.
Rabbi Ted Feldman and his associate, Mia Cohen, will talk about the Jewish High Holidays of Rosh Ha Shana (the New Year) and Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) along with the traditional treat of apples and honey to symbolize an auspicious New Year.
And Alby Kass will sing songs in Yiddish that he learned from his mother ... and possibly a tune or two from Fiddler on the Roof!
With such a program, how could you stay at home!
Join us for this joyful celebration of the New Year and the Jewish musical wedding tradition, along with some rollicking and soulful musical renditions from the tradition of the klezmorim of the Old World!
