Temple B’nai Abraham is excited to welcome singer/songwriter Julie Silver to join Cantor Jessica Epstein on the bima on Friday,  June 10, 2011 for a Shabbat B’ Shir: A Musical Shabbat Service, at 7:30 PM. Julie is one of the most celebrated and beloved performers in the world of contemporary Jewish music today.  She tours throughout the world, and has been engaging audiences with her lyrical guitar playing, her dynamic stage presence, and her megawatt smile for nearly twenty years.
 
Without backing from a major label, Julie has sold more than 70,000 copies of her CDs.   She released four highly successful albums of original Jewish music.  Her Jewish songs have become so tightly woven into the fabric of American Judaism that they have become “standards” in worship, camp, and academic settings. Her latest album, “Reunion” (2010) is a reflection of what she calls, “a faithful heart.” It is a beautiful collection of song and spirit. As one reviewer put it, “In Reunion, Julie’s ability to turn everyday life situations and experiences into spiritual encounters imbued with teachings and meanings has achieved a new level of artistry and skill.”
 
These days, Julie is focused on mentoring up-and-coming singer-songwriters and making the Jewish experience more meaningful. “I try to enhance the way people experience Judaism by adding my own take on our sacred texts” Julie says.  “I also want people who have historically been marginalized to feel included in the Jewish community or in any community. Our tradition compels us to express ourselves…our joys, our hopes, our faith and our fears.  The only path to healing is through sharing our stories with one another.  As a songwriter, I just write and sing what I feel…hopefully some of it sticks.”
 
Free and all are welcome to attend. For information please call 973.994.2290 or visit the website at www.tbanj.org.
