The Essential Klezmer

Hosted By: Temple Beth-El of City Island: Your Shul By the Sea

Join Seth Rogovoy, author of the best-selling, Essential Klezmer: A Music Lover’s Guide to Jewish Roots and Soul Music, and artistic director of Yidstock: The Festival of New Yiddish Music, as he takes us on a journey tracing Klezmer’s evolution from Old World shtetls to New World nightclubs. Through the sounds and shapes of Klezmer, we’ll meet many if the great heroes who helped transform Eastern European Yiddish wedding music into the vital form of world music it is today.

Host

Temple Beth-El of City Island: Your Shul By the Sea

Affectionately known as “Your Shul by the Sea,” Temple Beth-El is an all-inclusive, welcoming and independent (trans-denominational) congregation that has served Jews of all ages and their families for over 80 years. We are known for our joyful and haimish (warm) atmosphere, our music and our openly spiritual approach to Jewish life. Temple Beth-El does not affiliate with any of the denominations, but honors the diversity of Jewish belief and practice.  Women and men participate equally — as do couples, singles, and families.  We affirm the full spiritual inheritance, participation and leadership of LGBTQ souls, people of color, and multi-racial and multi-faith families.  Our members and friends hail from across the breadth of Jewish life: Conservative, Reform, Renewal and unaffiliated Jews make their spiritual home with us.
