Temple Beth Shalom celebrates Hanukah in concert

VERO BEACH — Orlando’s Beth Schafer will bring her infectious energy, well-crafted songs and intelligent lyrics to Temple Beth Shalom when she performs Lighting up Our House of Peace, a Hanukah Concert on Wednesday, Dec. 16 at 7 p.m.

The concert, presented by the Jews Appreciating Music Committee (JAM) of Temple Beth Shalom, is open to the public as one of an on-going series of musical and cultural events underwritten by the Ike and Alezah Eisentstein Music Fund.

Beth Schafer is re-defining Jewish music by combining masterful songwriting with sensitivity to liturgy and unique insight toward text. She specializes in music for Torah-minded adults looking for an extension to their Jewish lives through music. What makes her music special is her attention to the universal themes that not only define Judaism, but many other faiths as well. Schafer won the 2006 American Idol Underground Faith Based competition and has used that win to create new music for interfaith communities. Schafer has degrees in Music Theory and Composition from the University of Miami School of Music and is a trained and much sought after guitarist in styles ranging from Classical to Blues, Folk to Jazz. Beth is the cantorial leader of Temple Shir Shalom in Oviedo, Florida. All seating is open and available in advance for adults under age 62 at $18 each ($20 at door); adults 62 and over – $15 ($20 at door); students/children age 16 and under $12 per ticket; family packages are available for $65; ages three and under are free.  Sponsorship opportunities include four VIP reserved seats for $100 or two VIP reserved seats for $50.

Proceeds from the concert will continue to underwrite cultural arts programs at Temple Beth Shalom from The Ike and Alezah Music Fund. Light refreshments will be served during a Meet and Greet reception.
