Milk and Honey 'til Midnight, Brooklyn, NY, Jun 12

FREE! Soda Bar 629 Vanderbilt Ave. Prospect Heights, Brooklyn (718) 230-8393 Between Prospect Place and St. Marks Avenue Brooklyn Jews partners with JDUB Records for "Milk and Honey 'til Midnight," a night of learning and celebration at SODA in Prospect Hts., Brooklyn. An encounter with the wonder and awe of Mt. Sinai is found through Torah study, music (live and spun), and food (free Blintzes and cheesecake). Rabbi Andy Bachman and others will teach throughout the night. Performers include: The Chaneles is a 21st-century tribute to the Barry Sisters founded by Golem band-leader and accordionist Annette Ezekiel and fiddler extraordinaire Alicia Jo Rabins. These two veterans of the New York rock scene add a feminine touch to Yiddish songs and Klezmer melodies. Singer-songwriter Chana Rothman blends Israeli sensibility with funky freestyle and rhythm acoustic guitar. Originally from Toronto, she has performed across north America, Italy, Israel and Nepal, where she trekked through the Himalayas with a guitar strapped to her pack. Mark Schwartz is New York's foremost Latin-Jewish DJ. His singular mix of Yiddish swing, Mosaic mambo, and Jewish jazz has been featured at Joe's Pub, the Knitting Factory, Suba, Galapagos, Bembe, and Makor.
