The LeeVees, December 19, 2014

(Following Shabbat Chanukah service. Click here to learn more about our Chanukah celebration.) The LeeVees

The Leevees, a rock band from New York City featuring Adam Gardner of Guster and Dave Schneider of the Zambonis, will perform for us on Friday, December 19 following our Shabbat Chanukah service. The band was formed when Guster and the Zambonis went on tour together. The latter band only writes songs about hockey; Gardner and Schneider thought it would be fun to form another rock band, a Jewish one, that only wrote songs about Hanukkah, because there were very few contemporary songs about that holiday. It first came to prominence in 2005 with its debut album, Hanukkah Rocks. After realizing its initial approach was rather narrow, it continues as a band with a strong Jewish identity. With songs like “How Do You Spell Channukkahh?” this promises to be an evening of great fun! Learn more and listen to The LeeVees.

Underwritten by the Laurie and Henry Kay Music Fund.

Alan Goodis

We are delighted that Jewish musician Alan Goodis will join us this coming spring. Born and raised in Toronto, Alan works to engage and empower Jewish youth and adults through music and is noted for his dedication to building relationships and community with music as the tool. Alan tours throughout North America to serve as Artist-in-Residence and performer at temples, youth conventions and Jewish summer camps. In 2011, in partnership with the URJ, he developed Nashir, NFTY Teen Songleading Institute with the goal to provide meaningful Songleader training to high school students. In 2009, Alan’s self-titled debut album launched him onto the Jewish music scene with its powerful vocals and bold melodies. An exceptional musician and real mensch, Alan will join us during the weekend of April 10th through 12th. During that weekend he will have the opportunity to share his music with our community; he will also have some time to engage with our youth. Learn more and listen to Alan Goodis.
