Temple Beth-El is hosting a family Shabbat afternoon Sing-Along filled with music, snacks and crafts open to the community at no charge. The event will be held on Saturday, June 15, from 3:30 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the congregation located at 3610 Dundee Road, Northbrook.

The event will be led by Cantor Adam Kahan, who recently joined the congregation's full-time clergy.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

"Come with your family and experience Cantor Kahan's warmth, energy and musical talents as he leads us in song," said Rabbi Sidney Helbraun, Temple Beth-El. "This event will be an opportunity to meet other families with young children as well as experience our Temple Beth-El family."

"My childhood is filled with memories of sitting on my parents' laps, singing Peter, Paul and Mary, and other beloved folk songs and Jewish songs. That warm feeling of music, love, and togetherness is what brought me to Jewish music in the first place, and I'm so excited that we get to gather and bring that alive on June 15th," said Cantor Kahan.

Cantor Adam Kahan received his Cantorial Certification through the Debbie Friedman School of Sacred Music of the Hebrew Union College--Jewish Institute of Religion. He has spent the last 21 years honing his craft in leading prayer, communal music and singing with several North Shore synagogues.

"The Cantor's calling is a dedication to leaving people touched, moved and inspired by their shared experienced," added Rabbi Helbraun.
