Congregation B’nai B’rith’s SHIRA to Raise Money for Hadassah Hospital Through Song

Congregation B’nai B’rith’s annual concert of Jewish vocal music, SHIRA 2014, will take place at 4 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 23, and the focus this year is “Songs for Hadassah: Celebrating Jewish Composers,” featuring classic songs by a variety of Jewish musicians.

Cantor Mark Childs and several classically trained singers who are community members and participants in the synagogue’s Shir Chadash Choir will perform songs by Irving Berlin, Leonard Bernstein, Leonard Cohen, Aaron Copland, Billy Joel, Reynaldo Hahn, Frank Loesser, Gustav Mahler, Stephen Sondheim and many more.

Making a guest appearance at the piano will be Maestro Nir Kabaretti of the Santa Barbara Symphony.

The event will benefit Congregation B’nai B’rith’s commitment to sponsor a treatment room at the world-renowned Hadassah Hospitals.

The Hadassah Medical Center includes two university hospitals in Jerusalem. For over a century, Hadassah Hospitals have provided medical treatment to all people, regardless of race, religion or gender, making it an international model for world peace.

More than 800 physicians are employed by Hadassah Hospitals, and these doctors are “without borders” serving everyone in need. Hadassah Hospitals are also involved in cutting-edge research across a variety of medical specialties.

A complimentary reception follows the performance and features home-baked sweets by members of Santa Barbara’s local Hadassah chapter. Patron seating is available at $50 per person, and tickets will also be available at the door for a suggested donation of $25 per person ($12 for students/children). The event takes place at Congregation B’nai B’rith, 1000 San Antonio Creek Road in Santa Barbara.

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.
