Temple Sinai annual concert features Klezwoods

March 22, 2015 $8.00 - $40.00 0

Temple Sinai of Sharon is pleased to welcome Klezwoods as this year’s featured performer of the Annual Gusman Concert, on Sunday, March 22, at 3 p.m., at Temple Sinai, 25 Canton St., Sharon.

Klezwoods—which features Temple Sinai’s Assistant Cantor Becky Khitrik—is an amalgam of strings, horns and percussion that melds the spirit of traditional Klezmer and Balkan music with modern grooves, improvisation and original repertoire. Every player comes from a different background, which creates the band’s unique sound and style.

Klezwoods has played at The Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., and the Helsinki Klezmer Festival in Finland. The group tours regularly worldwide playing festivals and concerts.

Tickets are $15 for adults, $8 for children ages 5-15, and free for children under 5. There will be a maximum family cost of $40. Tickets can be reserved by phone and picked up at the door on the day of the concert.

For more information and to reserve tickets, contact the Temple Sinai office at 781-784-6081.

This event is part of a large, exciting series of programs being held throughout the year in connection with Temple Sinai’s Holocaust Torah Scroll Restoration Project. The temple has undertaken a year-long project to restore its Holocaust Torah Scroll, number 655, one of 1,564 scrolls recovered in Prague after the Holocaust. It dates back to the late 1700s and is one of the last remaining artifacts of the Jewish community of Prestice, Czechoslovakia.

Currently marred by holes, missing letters and seams that need to be re-sewn, this precious scroll remains beautiful, with both Ashkenazi and Sephardic elements and hidden mystical symbols waiting to be discovered.

Trained Torah scribe Rabbi Kevin Hale will be restoring the Torah. During this process, community members and children in the Temple’s Religious School have the opportunity to participate in special Torah letter writing sessions with Rabbi Hale.

Upcoming events in this year-long series include a Holocaust survivor speaker. For more information, visit www.temple-sinai.com.
