Songs of Light and Joy: The Jewish Folk Chorus of San Francisco
The winter holidays are a time for joyous singing! Join us in the atrium for a very special presentation by the Jewish Folk Chorus of San Francisco, still singing strong in its 97th year! We will be treated to songs of light, hope and freedom so needed in these times, in Yiddish, English, Ladino, and Russian. You’re invited to sing along as much as you’d like!
This is the season when people of all faiths and cultures are pushing back against the planetary darkness. We string bulbs, ignite bonfires, and light candles. And we sing.—Anita Diamant, Author of Choosing a Jewish Life
The Jewish Folk Chorus has been in existence since 1926. They stay true to their roots in the labor movement by preserving and performing works from their library of Yiddish labor songs. Through its 93-year existence, the Chorus has sung many interesting and difficult Jewish musical works, without forgetting the folk music of our ancestors. They preserve a rich, diverse and deeply satisfying musical heritage.
At JCCSF, San Francisco.
