Friday, August 7 / 7:15 PM
In August we present Cleveland-based violinist Steven Greenman, with pianist Byron Schenkman in a free 30 minute performance of Russian Jewish violin music. Greenman and Schenkman will also perform an additional short piece during the 8:00 PM service.
Steven Greenman is recognized internationally as one of the finest practitioners of traditional East European Jewish klezmer violin, and TBA member Byron Schenkman has released over 30 classical music CDs and presents an annual chamber music series at Benaroya Hall. This evening is sure to be a treat.

Aloha! This summer TBA is throwing a Hawaiian-themed BBQ!
This Shabbat dinner is a great opportunity to see old friends, meet new people, and schmooze with the rabbis.
Right after our Shabbat service we’ll be grilling teriyaki turkey burgers, veggie burgers, and hot dogs, with side dishes of macaroni salad, coleslaw, grilled pineapple, watermelon, and rainbow and coconut cakes from Kona Kitchen for dessert. There will be lemonade for everyone and beer available for adults.

Sponsorship costs only $100. Your name and the name of the honoree will be mentioned at the Shabbat service for the oneg you are sponsoring.
