Free Klezmer Music Concert at Temple Har Shalom in Warren

The Hester Street Troupe will perform at Temple Har Shalom in Warren on Sept. 8.

Temple Har Shalom invites the public to a joy-filled Shabbat service on Friday, September 8 at 7:30pm at 104 Mount Horeb Road, Warren, NJ that features the well-known NYC-based klezmer musicians, The Hester Street Troupe. This is the first of 5 klezmer events the Temple will host this year. 

The Hester Street Troupe, a New York City-based group specializing in klezmer and Jewish entertainment has been electrifying audiences for over thirty years. Their extraordinary repertoire consists of klezmer, a style where the clarinet imitates human emotions like laughing and crying, songs from the Yiddish vaudeville and Second Avenue theatres, as well as classic older and more contemporary Jewish melodies.  

The group has three recordings; their most recent, “On Second Avenue,” is a celebration of songs from the Yiddish vaudeville and the Lower East Side as well as traditional klezmer medleys.

I Reported It Myself!
