Chamber Music at Rodeph Sholom

About the Concert

At a time when we witness millions fleeing in terror and the lives of innocent people and children falling victim to senseless invasion, it is easy to feel helpless. Even as we invite everyone in our community to raise responsibility and action, we also need the strength and hope that only community can provide. With gratitude to the inspiration of our CRS members Eliot Bailen and Susie Rotholz, we bring forward songs and music meant to help us stand in solidarity and feel held in hope. Join us in song on April 2nd at 2:00 PM.

In lieu of purchasing a ticket to this concert, we encourage you to donate to the World Union for Progressive Judaism’s Ukraine Crisis Fund to support the Jewish community in Ukraine.
