Temple Judea had a blast promoting the Kalish Artist-in-Residence Weekend with Josh Nelson. Director of Education Beth Young was especially excited to hear Josh perform one of her favorites, “Yihiyu L’Ratzon.”
It’s gonna be awesome! RT @JudeaGables: We can’t wait to #JamAtJudea with @joshnelsonmusic on Sat. Dec. 8 @ 7PM! Will YOU be there?Beth Young
We made sure to let Josh know we were looking forward to seeing him. After all, isn’t that what being a good host is all about?

A Josh Nelson concert is always fun and inspirational, but a Josh Nelson concert that falls on the first night of Chanukah is even better! Chanukiot all around!

After weeks of promoting the concert we learned the word had gotten out and we could expect some pretty cool guests, like Assistant Director of URJ Kutz Camp Kelly Beidinger, NFTY STR Regional Director Julie Marsh, URJ Camp Coleman Senior Assistant Director Andi Solomon and NFTY STR Artist-in-Residence Alan Goodis.

Seeing a retweet from Rock Shabbat was especially touching. Our very own Sam Rotenberg created Rock Shabbat: A Road Trip of Jewish American Music earlier this summer with his friends from Camp Coleman.

Our rockin’ music specialist Benny Lipson helped our student choir prepare for their on-stage debut. The Dreidels sang “Hava Nashira” and “In These Lights” with Josh during the concert and they sounded wonderful!
I’m a dreidel, you’re a dreidel, he’s a dreidel, she’s a dreidel. Wouldn’t you like to be a dreidel too? @joshnelsonmusic #JamAtJudeaBenny Lipson
