Thanks to all who came out to share with us the joy of the season! Our musical feast for the soul featured Renaissance music and carols for Christmas and Hannukah, works for men's voices by the great Randall Thompson, and our famous family singalong! We were joined by treble soloist Benjamin Sachs, who sang in both English and Hebrew. The music was followed by a beautiful reception, provided with compliments to all the patrons, press, and local politicians in attendance - our largest crowd yet. Truly a warm and wonderful holiday gathering!
