Please note that due to an overwhelming and appreciated response, we will not be accepting RSVP's at the door. Advance RSVP and payment via this website is required.

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.
