Back in the Q!
Rabbi Joe Black
with special guest Sandra Wong
Sunday November 17 ~ 6:00 pm
Rabbi Black became Senior Rabbi of Denver's Temple Emanuel in July 2010, just before Abq Jew came to town. Abq Jew and Rabbi Black have never met, and Abq Jew has never (to date) seen Rabbi Black perform. But we are, of course, Facebook friends.
Here is Judah Maccabee, one of the songs that Rabbi Joe Black will undoubtedly perform - we'll be getting really, really close to Thanksgivukkah.
What, Abq Jew hears you ask, about Sandra Wong?
In 1999, [Sandra] was introduced to (and fell in love with!) a wonderful Swedish folk instrument, the nyckelharpa (a 16 stringed, keyed bowed instrument).
The nyckelharpa has become an integral part of [her] work and musical expression (please go to www.nyckelharpa.org for more information on this instrument).
What, pray tell, does a nyckelharpa sound like? You may already know - Sandra has performed in Albuquerque before. But if you don't - it sort of sounds like this:
As previously mentioned - this is a benefit concert for Family Promise and Congregation Albert, both good Albuquerque organizations worthy of our support.
Go! Enjoy! Contribute!
Family Promise (formerly the Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN)) provides shelter, meals and support services to families seeking permanent housing.
Albuquerque is the 104th city to implement a Family Promise program, and there are 10 congregations involved with Family Promise in our area.
Congregation Albert became involved with Family Promise (then IHN) in the spring of 2007, and hosts families approximately 5 times throughout the year for one week each time. CA provides lodging, meals and welcoming care for their guests.
