MALVERNE JEWISH CENTER TO SHOWCASE
MUSIC OF JEWISH ROCK ICONS Folk-rock harmony trio Gathering Time
to perform hits of the 1960s & ’70s
As the old expression goes, you don’t have to be Jewish to enjoy the Jews Who Rock concert at Malverne Jewish Center on Sunday, June 10. You only have to love great rock ‘n’ roll and folk-rock.But Jewish baby-boomers might feel a bit of pride to know how much of the music that shaped a generation and left a lasting impact on pop culture came from members of the tribe. Bob Dylan is a well-known one, as are Simon and Garfunkel. But add to the list Carole King (nee Klein), Arlo Guthrie, Carly Simon, Robbie Robertson, Peter Yarrow, three of the four Mamas & Papas, The Turtles, Billy Joel and Steely Dan, and even “Chanukah Song” author Adam Sandler might be impressed.
Malverne Jewish Center’s Rabbi Susan Elkodsi said “While there might be special appeal to Baby Boomers, “Jews Who Rock” is a wonderful way to blend our love of music with our Jewish heritage in a program that will appeal to all ages.”
Tickets are $20 in advance or at the door. Space is limited. Showtime is 5 p.m.. Malverne Jewish Center is located at 1 Norwood Ave., inside the Bridge Church building on the corner of Hempstead Ave. in Malverne.
