Hal Aqua and the Lost Tribe
Saturday February 24th, 7:00 PM

Hal Aqua and The Lost Tribe play klezmer fusion music -- an exuberant musical experience, rooted firmly in traditional Jewish modes and melodies and driven by contemporary rhythms and danceable grooves.

The versatile musicians who make up The Lost Tribe have a deep respect for their source material, from the evocative tunes of Eastern European Jews and Gypsies to the sinuous rhythms of the Middle East and Mediterranean. In the long-standing Jewish tradition of absorbing musical inspiration from surrounding cultures, The Lost Tribe steeps their songs in a broth spiced with rock, reggae, salsa, funk and blues influences, serving up an irresistible party vibe. The band includes Hal Aqua (vocals, guitars, octave mandolin, ukulele), Annie Aqua (violin), Ben Cohen (electric and acoustic bass, tuba), Shanti Hazan (drums and percussion), and Miriam Rosenblum (clarinet, recorders, button accordion).

Learn Hebrew
 

B'nai Chaim offers several adult Hebrew classes:

Beginner and One Level Up from Aleph Bet -- Taught by Sandy at the Temple on Sundays from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM and/or Wednesday. The books used are the "Aleph Isn't Tough" series (1-5) by Linda Motzkin. It is available on Amazon. The class usually follows the Religious School schedule, but different arrangements are occasionally made, so please stay in touch with Sandy.

Please note: A $36 contribution to Religious School is requested as tuition, and students need to buy their own books.

Haven't you always wanted to learn a bit more Hebrew?
 

 
10 Minutes of Torah

Who among us is so busy that he or she cannot spend 10 minutes a day in the study of a Jewish text? Just 10 minutes? Such a commitment would enable us to meet our Jewish obligation to make Jewish study a fixed occurrence. We make time to answer our cell phones a dozen times a day and to check our email five times an hour...

... surely we can find 10 minutes to contemplate sacred words that nourish the soul.
