Shirei Teva: A Celebration of Nature in Jewish Music

With Cantors Natasha Hirschhorn & Maria Dubinsky, Shirei Chesed Community Chorus, Tziporet Children's Chorus and other special guests! 

From beloved folk songs to new musical settings of prayers, Nature is ever present! Whether a magnificent backdrop or a poetic metaphor, it reminds us of our connection to the Earth and all its creatures. Hear and sing with us some of the most vibrant melodies from a variety of Jewish musical traditions that celebrate natural imagery - mighty oceans, gentle rivers, giving trees and soaring birds.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and seniors. Day of/at the door tickets are $15 for adults and $7 for students and seniors.
