Get Ready to Rock on November 18
By Jacques Steinberg
Fans of Jewish Rock – or others who may be curious what it would sound like to set the liturgy and culture of Judaism to a rock-and-roll beat – should mark their calendars for the evening of Saturday Nov. 18, when a giant of the genre, Dan Nichols, will rock our house of worship.
Dan’s solo concerts are an intimate experience in which Dan gets the whole room singing together (lyrics are projected for all to see) to his inspiring music. The concert will begin with a moving Havdalah ceremony.
The performance is the latest in a run of similar evenings put on by the WJC Musical Enrichment Committee in recent years – including those headlined by Trio Shalva, a band that weaves Hebrew folk tradition with jazz and features WJC’s own Nadav Snir Zelniker on drums, and Nava Tehila, a Jerusalem-based group that fuses Hebrew poetry with gorgeous melodies.
The concert will start at 8 PM on Nov. 18, and light refreshments (as well as adult beverages) will be served.
