“Power and Glory: Dramatic Tenors in Opera”
These are the voices that bring the audience to their feet in a crescendo of bravos. These are the voices that create legends. These are the no holds barred voices - the glory of opera. The voices that make your heart pound a little faster. Join GJC’s own “Maestro” Sam Feinberg in the Temin Canteen Room for an evening as he introduces these voices in this exciting opera program. Using audio and visual aids, you’ll enter the realm of legends. These marvelous voices are guaranteed to stay with you long after the program is over. Whether you are new to opera or an old hand, you will find much to thrill you!
The program will be in GJC's Silver Kiddush Lounge. Wine and snacks will be provided.

As August draws to a close, and September approaches on the horizon, I want to offer as a kavannah (intention) a poem by Zelda, translated from the Hebrew by Marcia Falk.

in the small boat of peace
with the moon and the heavenly bodies.
May we find in these last moments of summer precious gifts of leisure, joy, renewal and peace that we are able carry with us throughout this new year.
