Rabbi Saul Grife presents…“Tales From the First Book”

In 2007, Rabbi Saul Grife released his first musical CD entitled “Tales from the First Book”, an original rock opera based on the stories of the first book of the Bible, Genesis.  Rabbi Saul and his band played concerts in several cities across America, including appearances right here at BTBJ.  Rabbi Grife was excited to combine his love of Torah with his love of music to create a vehicle through which he could share his uplifting and inspiring interpretation of Judaism’s founding stories and bring them to life through the passion of the music. 

It’s been many years since Rabbi Saul presented “Tales” here at BTBJ.  He is looking forward to sharing his creation with a whole new generation of people.

Cantor Benjamin Greenfield presents…Leonard Bernstein & Connection to Judaism

In celebration of Bernstein’s 100th birthday on August 25th 2018, Cantor Greenfield will lead a session on Bernstein’s connection to Judaism.  As a composer, Bernstein wrote on Jewish subjects more so than any major American composer born to a Jewish family.  Works to be explored in this session will be Bernstein’s Symphony 1 “Jeremiah,” his “Chichester Psalms,” a favorite of choirs, and one of his lesser known works, his ballet “The Dybbuk.”  As a conductor, he championed the works of major Jewish composers and composers who were born into Jewish families, Mendelssohn and Mahler, but converted to Christianity so they could advance musically in a 19th century Europe that would not allow them to exist as Jews.
