BOCA RATON, FL, UNITED STATES, February 14, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — B’nai Torah Congregation, the largest conservative synagogue in Southeast Florida, announced the return of the synagogue’s popular and inspiring Concert Series. The 2022 Concert Series, now in its 29th year, will include four live, in-person performances featuring singers, songwriters, poets, pianists, and Cantors from around the world. All four events will take place in the sanctuary at B’nai Torah Congregation, located at 6261 SW 18th Street, Boca Raton, Florida. The 2022 Concert Series, which will offer a virtual option as well, is presented in loving memory of Eleanor and Paul Weiner.

As the leader of the Concert Series, B’nai Torah Congregation’s Cantor Magda Fishman selected the concert performers and will be performing during two of the four events. She has performed extensively in Israel, the United States, Europe and Canada and her musical repertoire includes liturgical masterpieces, Israeli songs, jazz, musical theater and her own compositions.

“I am overwhelmed with gratitude and joy to be able to bring this extraordinary musical program to our community – live from our sanctuary – once again,” said Cantor Fishman. “The last two years have served as a reminder of how powerful music can be in bringing people together and providing comfort and joy during challenging times. I am proud to introduce an incredible lineup of musicians – each of whom are truly exceptional.”

“In all 29 years of the B’nai Torah Concert Series, I have not felt the level of excitement that I’m feeling now,” added Rabbi David Steinhardt. “Having the opportunity to gather in person again, we can come together to enjoy music from great musical artists and cantors.”

Back by popular demand! Last season, concertgoers raved about this young performer who is described as George Gershwin meets the Great Israeli songbook; Chopin meets the Beatles; and Beethoven meets the Jewish nigun. Guy is an Israeli-born and New York-based award-winning pianist, composer and educator who is active in the jazz, world music and contemporary scenes. Guy’s boundary-crossing music portrays the imaginative journey of a young individual searching for truth, beauty, and freedom. In his music, Guy brings together elements from Stride piano to Turkish Makams, Indian rhythms to Bach-styled counterpoint, Jewish melodies and American jazz standards all woven together in his own signature style. Cantor Fishman will perform with Guy.
