Israel is just about to turn 75 years old, and The Jewish Federation of Greater Nashville is celebrating the occasion with three fun, community wide events.
On May 12 at 6:00pm, everyone is invited for a special Shabbat birthday celebration at Congregation Micah.
Then on May 21, the community is invited to participate in a very special musical project. Participants will be taught a special song in English and Hebrew composed by the renowned singer/songwriter, Matisyahu. The community sing is based on other large group singing projects and will be arranged and conducted by our local Jewish community musicians and singers. Everyone will sing together in a unified voice, as part of a music video which will be shared in our community. Everyone is welcome, no prior musical experience is necessary. We will teach you everything you need to know for this special event. The first 75 people who register will receive a complimentary event t-shirt. The community sing will take place at the Gordon Jewish Community Center from 2:00-4:00pm.
And finally, on June 21, The Jewish Federation presents an evening of music with Aveva Dese, an Ethiopian Israeli singer-songwriter. Dese blends traditional Ethiopian sounds with pop melodies. The concert is scheduled for 7:00pm, location to be announced soon.
