Amidst the Darkness, Joy! Intimate Songs to Stir the Soul
Congregation Bonai Shalom invites the community to this special opportunity to hear Julie Geller live in concert on December 12 (2nd night of Chanukah). Playing a unique combination of original folk and original Jewish music, Julie sings the truth of her experience with unflinching honesty and warmth. Her music has the power to remind us who we are and who we want to become.
