New video: Kol Tzedek’s Chanukah party

Owing to a perfect storm of technical difficulties, this post has been a long time in coming–but check out the videos of the kickoff of the community side of the Philly Sher Project at Kol Tzedek‘s Chanukah party on December 13, 2009.  The first clip shows the community lighting Chanukah candles, saying blessings and singing traditional songs.  The second and third clips show Naomi Segal teaching the sher; the fourth and fifth clips show the community dancing the sher to the sounds of the Kol Tzedek Klezmer All-Stars featuring Susan and Elaine Hoffman Watts.  You can see all of the clips on our video page.  Thanks to Kol Tzedek member Greg Scruggs for manning the video camera.


Come dance the sher at Kol Tzedek’s Purim extravaganza!

Kol Tzedek’s annual Purim party will be taking place at 5 pm on Saturday, February 27, 2010 at the Calvary Center for Culture and Community, 48th Street and Baltimore Avenue.  The Klezmer All-Stars will be doing a shortened version of the sher around 6 pm.  Come for our multilingual megillah reading, costumes, food, games and, of course, great klezmer!
