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.  The performances took on various styles, including workshops that combined the music with teaching the Torah behind the songs and then straight up musical presentations.  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. 

On the evening of November 10th, Rabbi Saul will be joined on guitar by his producer and guitarist extraordinaire Joe Mass and other musicians to present an evening of Torah and music from “Tales from the First Book”.  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.  

Make your plans to be at BTBJ to experience Rabbi Saul Grife’s tour de force presentation of “Tales from the First Book” on Wednesday November 7th!!

After the show, Rabbi Saul will make copies of the CD and commemorative posters available!
