The Adams Street Shul will be hosting an "Erev Shira – An Evening of Music" on Saturday evening, January 13 from 7:30 – 10:00 PM.  

Join us, along with members of several other Newton shuls, as we sing Israeli and Jewish songs both old and new. No need to know the words beforehand; lyrics will be projected on a screen for all.

Dessert and light refreshments will be served. The cost for this event is $5.00 per person.

Co-sponsored by The Adams Street Shul, The Sephardic Congregation of Newton, Congregation Beth El-Atereth Israel and Shaarei Tefi lla Congregation. For more information, contact Nechama Cheses at .
