Hootenanny: A Celebration of Jewish Music

Thu, Nov 17, 2022 • 7:00 PM11:00 PM



Live in person at Congregation Rodeph Sholom in New York City, and broadcast around the world, the evening will celebrate the deep tapestry of contemporary Jewish music and will be music directed by Elana Arian, hailed as “one of the greatest Jewish voices of our time.” Arian will be joined by an all-star musical line-up including Dan Nichols, Julie Silver, Kol B’Seder (Dan Freelander & Jeff Klepper), Noah Aronson, Michelle Citrin, Alan Goodis, Joanie Leeds, and Naomi Less. 

 On stages across the globe, these featured musicians have transformed Jewish music. Influenced by the late Debbie Friedman (z”l), whose folk-infused music bridged secular and Jewish traditions and became the prevailing sound of modern American Jewish music today, these musicians have created a body of work that has been integrated into the repertoire of congregations, youth groups, and Jewish summer camps around the world. 

 Proceeds from this event will benefit the Union for Reform Judaism’s Eisner and Crane Lake Camps in Massachusetts. Tickets can be purchased at www.hootenannylive.org.
