A Great Night At Temple Emanu-El

January 25, 2020

Last night, I enjoyed attending Friday night/Shabbat services, with the great added dimension of performances by members of the cast of “Fiddler On The Roof in Yiddish,” at Temple Emanu-El 1 East 65th Street.

It was a full house in the sprawling edifice and I thought back to when I did attend services and also to the great show, “Fiddler On The Roof.” That experience was truly moving.

Among the songs performed in Yiddish (I do not speak or even understand it, however I learned some matching the words, as I knew the songs) were “Sunrise, Sunset” and “Do You Love Me?” It was quite a treat, part of a great night.

On Friday February 7th, another fantastic event at Temple Emanu-El:

“Blessings From Broadway” with Broadway star, Laurie Akers and Temple Emanu-El Cantor, Mo Glazman.

Of course, memories abounded concerning the great Zero Mostel, pictured above, as he starred in the original “Fiddler On The Roof.”
