L’Chaim – A Monthly Taste of Jewish Music from – Anywhere!

While members of the Colorado Hebrew Chorale and its women’s choir Kol Nashim are still on hiatus from rehearsals and performances due to the COVID-19 situation, the Chorale has been busy offering exciting virtual enrichment activities that are free and open to the community. 

We are now launching a new virtual monthly series: L’Chaim – A Taste of Jewish Music from – Anywhere! The first program will be held Monday, August 17, 2020, 7:30 pm MDT during the Hebrew month of Av. 

Cantor Janet Ilene Roth 

Attendees will “travel” to Tel Aviv together with Cantor Janet Ilene Roth of Congregation Ohr Shalom/the Summit JCC in Summit, NJ. The Cantor recommends that participants prepare sabich (pita with eggplant) and choice of beverage and join her in singing songs of Tel Aviv. Zoom audiences will come away with a “taste” of Israel’s “Big Apple” through food, music and fun.

After “visiting” Tel Aviv during the Hebrew month of Av, the Hebrew months of Elul and Tishrei will focus on exotic locations. On Monday, September 14, 7:30 MDT guest presenter Dr. Vanessa Paloma Elbaz shares Jewish music and food with a “High Holidays in Morocco” theme. 

During chol ha-mo’ed Sukkot, on Monday, October 5, 7:30 pm MDT, attendees will “travel” to India with Rahel Musleah. Programs will also take place on November 9 (Cheshvan) and December 14 (Chanukah – Kislev).

 L’Chaim! is sponsored by the friends and supporters of the Colorado Hebrew Chorale, SCFD (the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District), CCI (Colorado Creative Industries), and the Union Pacific Foundation.

This unique “travel and sample” cultural offering is free and open to the public but advance registration is required. Participants will receive the links to repertoire and recipes prior to the presentations. Registration includes all events in the series.

A registration link may be found at www.coloradohebrewchorale.org.
