THIS FRIDAY -
MARCH 13th
The Orpheus World Music Ensemble offers music and ritual from a variety of cultures including West Africa, Brazil and the Middle East, with a special emphasis on music from the Jewish diaspora. They perform around the Bay Area and throughout Northern California.
Their March 13th offering at Beth Chaim will be in two parts. The first half features all Jewish music (Ashkenazic, Sephardic, Mizrachi (Eastern), and two original pieces). The remainder of the evening will celebrate "world music" from East and West Africa, Brazil, and a taste of Salsa as well. There will be dancing and a few African lullabies to close the evening.

The members consist of Bruce Silverman, director, drums, steel pans (steel drums), percussion and vocals; Renee Benmeleh, co-director, vocals, drums, percussion; Rob Kelman, drums, recorder, percussion; Yari Mander, drums, steel pans (steel drums), vocals, percussion; Brigid Kelly, vocals, drums, percussion; and Mark Benjamin, guitar, bass, mandolin, drums, vocals.

Beth Chaim Congregation invites members and friends to come together on Friday evenings - Thank God It's Shabbat (TGIS) - to celebrate Shabbat in a variety of ways each month. We offer a brief Shabbat Evening Service followed by a schmooze to share (BYO) food and drink. 

At 8:00pm there will be a program, film, music or some other form of engaging opportunity to spend time together. We hope that you will mark your calendars for these monthly Friday evening gatherings and join other members in a relaxed, comfortable celebration of Shabbat.
