Music has always been the lifeblood of the Jewish people. From chanting in synagogue to celebratory singing at weddings, music is integral to who we are. It is also a huge part of what makes the Sarah Sommer Chai Folk Ensemble so special, as the integration of music and dance is integral to who we are.
This year, Chai will be launching a brand new album, the first in ten years. Made up of both spiritual and contemporary Jewish music, this record will represent Winnipeg’s Jewish community, from those who have been here for generations to those who have just arrived.
In addition to the recording, this project will feature a full-length performance of the album through both song and dance. This will be a landmark occasion, as it honours the Jewish Foundation of Manitoba, and all the incredible contributions it has made to our community.
Tax receipts will be issued for the full allowable amount.
