Let There Be Love
A Chanukah Benefit Concert Honoring Noah Aronson
On December 10th, please join us for Let There Be Love, a moving Chanukah concert to benefit TBE and honor our beloved Noah Aronson in his 18th year with us. This benefit concert is open to our entire congregation and will be our annual fundraiser.
Through the years, Noah’s contributions have left an indelible mark on the hearts and souls of our congregation and his joyful music continues to nourish and uplift us, resonating across the generations. His song “Let There Be Love,” which he composed with our beloved Cantor Emerita Jodi Sufrin in 2013, is sung every Shabbat, connecting and inspiring us as we lift our voices together.
