Cantorial and Classical music benefit for Argentinian Jews, Chestnut Hill, MA, Apr 16

On Sunday April 16, the Argentinean Jewish Relief Committee of Greater Boston (AJRC) will hold its 5th annual concert, "Sounds of Argentina 2006" to benefit the Jewish community in Argentina. The performance will feature Argentinean cantors Dudi Feuer (Temple Emanu-El in Florida), Karen Nisnik (Buenos Aires), and Elias Rosemberg (Temple Emeth in Newton), with the host congregation’s cantor - Aryeh Finklestein- as well as widely praised Argentinean soprano Clara Sandler. The concert will take place at 3:00 pm at Congregation Mishkan Tefila, 300 Hammond Pond Parkway, Chestnut Hill. Cantorial, as well as popular Yiddish, Ladino and Hebrew songs will be featured. This concert brings real community entertainment lead by extraordinarily talented and lively voices.

The Argentinean Jewish Relief Campaign of Greater Boston (AJRC) was organized in January 2002, as an all-volunteer, grassroots response to the worsening circumstances facing Argentinean Jews. The concert is co-sponsored by Combined Jewish Philanthropies and by the Consulate General of Israel to New England. The proceedings go in their entirety to help the Argentinean Jewish Community.
