Shalva Mt. Kilimanjaro Challenge

BJC Frank Solomon will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzana next October to raise money for Jerusalem’s Shalva Children’s Center, which helps children with disabilities. Shalva provides rehab programs for children with physical and mental disabilities and empowers these them and their families to live in a socially inclusive environment. He has to amass $10,000 for this challenge, and throw in a few thousand on his on, in addition to trekking 19,000 feet up the world’s highest free-standing mountain (hint: Mt. Everest is the highest in the world but I isn’t free-standing).

Frank thinks his climb has a purpose–climb mountains, but not much meaning. Your sponsorship will add meaning to his effort, a perfect way to combine tikkun olam with sedekah. If you want to find out more about this BJC member and his story that led to his decision to take this challenge, please go to: http://climb4shalva.org/profile.php?id=122

On the Migration of Souls

Saturday, October 14, 2017 | 7:30pm
Tickets at www.TheThirteenChoir.org/concerts

The human story is a history of migration. As humankind has migrated, musical ideas have migrated as well, often resulting in flowerings of choral music. This concert will include works from the Renaissance through today, and explore music from the Jewish diaspora, African American spirituals, and works relevant to our shared society.
This concert will feature works by two Jewish composers, Stacy Garrop and Joshua Fishbein, a musical setting of Emma Lazarus’ New Colossus, and a setting of a rewriting of the Kaddish by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Lang.
