Arts Emanu-El


The Arts Emanu-El committee is dedicated to producing events of excellence in the arts. In the 8 years of its existence, the range of programming includes concerts, art exhibits with resident artists, films and Jewish dancing, all supplemented by thematically linked cuisine. This year, the first of the 2 concerts featured Russian Jewish Art Music in a salon setting, a musicologist's narration and the choir of Hebrew College. The second concert was a tribute to Israel @ 70 featuring an Iraqi-Sephardi band, audience singing, and dancing in the aisles. Movies have included "Hava," followed by Israeli dancing, and "The Return of the Violin," followed by a live performance of the 2nd and 3rd movements of the Brahms Violin Concerto, the concerto which is featured in the film.

Arts Emanu-El also sponsors "Singing the Dream," an annual tribute to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Lay choirs representing churches and synagogues assemble for a community sing-a-long in this cultural event celebrating the power of music and the triumph of the human spirit.
