Café Achshav returns to Temple Israel of Natick on Sunday, April 10, at 7:15 PM, with an evening of spirited Klezmer! This year, Café Achshav brings you the Strauss/Warshauer Duo – Deborah Strauss (violin, accordion, vocals, dance) and Cantor Jeff Warschauer (guitar, mandolin, vocals) – who have been at the forefront of the international Klezmer and Yiddish music scene for 25 years. Strauss and Warshauer were long-time members of the Klezmer Conservatory Band, one of the premier groups of the Klezmer revival; both have performed with legendary violinist Itzhak Perlman on film and in concert.

As the Strauss/Warschauer Duo, they have performed to overwhelming acclaim at the Philadelphia Folk Festival, Great Britain’s Fiddles on Fire, the Jewish Culture Festival in Cracow, Poland, and the Art of Yiddish in Los Angeles with the late actor and singer Theodore Bikel.

Jeff is the Cantor at Temple Sinai in Massapequa, NY and Founding Artistic Director and Senior Artistic Advisor of the KlezKanada Institute for Yiddish/Jewish Culture and the Arts. He is on the faculty of Columbia University in New York and is a graduate of the H.L. Miller Cantorial School at the Jewish Theological Seminary.

Deborah is a highly regarded Yiddish dancer and dance leader. She has performed with the Grammy-winning Klezmatics and appears in the new film, Theodore Bikel: In the Shoes of Sholom Aleichem. She is also an award-winning children’s educator.
