An Evening of Jewish Stories, Poetry and Music

Lenny Rosenfield and Albert Alexander joking at 2018 event

A magical celebration of life, community and the arts will take place on an upcoming winter evening in Ithaca. Celebrating twenty years of original stories, traditional tales, folk and contemporary poetry, and dynamic live music from around the world - Temple Beth El proudly hosts the Annual Evening of Jewish Storytelling, Poetry and Music on Saturday, February 2nd at 7:30 PM. 

This event has become extremely popular over the years, drawing participants together for an intimate and cozy evening; a real reminder of times past. People who might otherwise never cross paths - listen, laugh, shed a few tears together perhaps - and get to know each other.  The idea is to get away from the computer and television screens and share a moment of slower pleasures, together. In addition, there are always complimentary, traditional homemade treats to be enjoyed while listening to the treasures of the night.

This year’s celebration offers an exciting and diverse selection of storytellers, poets and musicians both young and old. The Cornell University Klezmer Ensemble will participate, as will “Mel and Sol,” a local acoustic duo comprised of Will Fudeman and David Frumkin. The event ends at about 9:30 and has an intermission. Families with children are welcome.

A donation of $4 per individual and $8 per family is requested to cover costs.
