Bring your menorah, your appetite, and your energy for “zingen und tantzen” (singing and dancing)! B’nai Shalom invites fun-lovers of all ages to a festive December 25 “Klezmer Kafe,” featuring the foot-tapping music of the Odessa Klezmer Band, directed by Ed Goldberg.

Performing since 1984, the band revives the eastern European tradition of Jewish traveling musicians for modern audiences – adding freilich polkas, czardas, and tunes from the Ladino and Middle Eastern repertoire.

The Odessa Klezmer Band features lead vocalist Ed Goldberg on accordion—a four-time Grammy winner, with instrumental back-up. It will be a big sound for a high-energy, joyful party.

We will serve a full Chinese dinner (with donuts!). And do bring your family’s menorah and five candles. It’s the fourth night of Chanukah, and we will be lighting candles together.
