Jewish Jazz:  Great Connections Between Jazz and Klezmer Music

Works by Joplin, Goodman, Kovacs, Gershwin and more.

on Thursday, June 2 at 7:30pm at CBI

AmiciMusic returns to Congregation Beth Israel on Thursday, June 2 at 7:30pm for another thrilling program entitled “JEWISH JAZZ” featuring clarinetist Steve Loew and pianist/Artistic Director Daniel Weiser.  They will highlight some fascinating connections between Klezmer music and early American Jazz as many of the new immigrant Jews in New York City in the first decades of the 20th century fused the sounds of the Synagogue and their own Klezmer folk music with the new Ragtime and Blues that came up with the great African-American migration from the South to produce a new and distinctly American sound—Jazz.  Dr. Weiser will talk about these many interconnections and they will perform great music by Benny Goodman, Scott Joplin, Lev Kogan, Bela Kovacs, George Gershwin, and more, including a wonderful arrangement of “Rhapsody in Blue.”   Seats are only $25 in advance or $30 at the door.  Children 18 and under are free.  For more information and to reserve your seats now, visit:  https://www.amicimusic.org/concert/jewish-jazz-4/.For more information click Jewish Jazz 6.2.22.

Shabbat HaMalka: Kabbalat Shabbat & Program
Jun 3 @ 6:00 pm – 7:15 pm
Shabbat HaMalkah – A Spiritual Journey
New Zoom service for Friday night.
Meeting the first Friday of each month (of the secular calendar) at 6:00 pm, the service will be led by Josefa and a guest speaker.
Our intention is to create an intimate space at home where, as individuals and together as a community, we’ll be able to welcome and greet the Shabbat, getting in touch with the Shabbat essence and healing power.
Through Kabbalat Shabbat’s psalms and prayers, we will step forward towards the gate of Shabbat. (We will not hold Maariv service).
Join here.  Abbreviated Siddur here.

Guest speaker (May 6):  Alan S. Baumgarten: Mindfulness and Zen Judaism

“I have been in Asheville since 1983 and a member of Congregation Beth Israel for more than 20 years. I am a family doctor now working part-time as I move into retirement. I love my work, so I am proceeding slowly. I have been very active in our medical community, my practice at the Family Health Centers and social causes. I enjoy a spiritual life both Jewish and mindfulness, fitness and martial arts, gardening, woodworking, cooking and baking, travel (haha) and most of all my family.”

Guest speaker (June 3): Jessica Jacobs is the author of Take Me with You, Wherever You’re Going (Four Way Books), winner of the Devil’s Kitchen and Goldie Awards, and Pelvis with Distance (White Pine Press), winner of the New Mexico Book Award and a finalist for the Lambda Literary Award. She serves as Chapbook Editor for Beloit Poetry Journal and lives in Asheville, NC, with her wife, the poet Nickole Brown, with whom she co-authored Write It! 100 Poetry Prompts to Inspire (Spruce Books/PenguinRandomHouse). Her collection of poems in conversation with the Book of Genesis will be out from Four Way Books in 2024.
