Evening of Jewish Stories, Poetry and Music

Michael MargolinYonah LempertJill Leichter

A magical celebration of life, community and the arts will take place on an upcoming winter evening in Ithaca. Celebrating twenty one 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 8TH 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 event ends at about 9:30 and has an intermission. Families with children are welcome.

The celebration will take place downstairs in the social hall of Temple Beth El, located at the corner of Court and Tioga Streets in downtown Ithaca, on Saturday, February 8th at 7:30.  A donation of $4 per individual and $8 per family is requested to cover costs.
