Yup, you heard it right. This Friday, March 15, I will be sharing “A Shabbat Sweet” in Albuquerque, New Mexico at Congregation Albert!!! This will be my first time sharing the service outside of Chicagoland. Wow am I excited and nervous! And I’ll be flying solo! No back-up band.
And… here are three new videos. The first two are from “A Shabbat Sweet” at the Jewish Reconstructionist Congregation (JRC) in Evanston, Illinois as I shared the service on January 11, 2013 with an amazing back-up band: Hannah Kaplan on vocals, Emma Chanen on vocals and ukulele, Jim Cox on bass, Mike O’Mara on Keyboards, Dave Newman on drums and, yup, that twelve-year-old clarinet player, Jonah Karsh, is one amazing musician!!!! I know, I know: it’s not the entire service. I guess it’s time for me to invest in a new video recorder!!!!!!
The third video is from a service played by an Interfaith Youth Orchestra made up of teens from JRC and the Lake Street Church. Yes, that IS my daughter as lead singer and band leader (not that I’m crazy proud!)!!!
