A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
This is the opening program for the Library exhibition A FINE ROMANCE: Jewish Songwriters, American Songs, 1910 - 1965 (on display through Dec 22). Cantor Sharon Bernstein, accompanied by Carolyn Reiser on the piano, will perform songs from Tin Pan Alley to Broadway, celebrating the songwriters and composers of A FINE ROMANCE.
Using striking images from Broadway musicals, classic films, and personal collections, A FINE ROMANCE tells the story of Jewish artists who created songs of wit, sophistication, and optimism through America’s ups and downs during the 20th century. Songs like “As Time Goes By,” “It Had to Be You,” and “Over the Rainbow” have captivated generations of audiences and remain beloved musical icons of American popular culture.
