Like it or not, Winter is here. Hanukkah is over and we must trudge through the cold and snow when the heat of summer seems a distant memory, and even the brisk autumn chill is out of reach. So where to reach for warmth? Why, right here at the ENJC. Regardless of what the thermostat is set to, you'll aways find the warmth of Jewish companionship here at East Northport Jewish Center. One of the newest additions to our shul is the yet un-named ENJC Klezmer band, which has survived multiple rehearsals without anyone breaking the group to "go solo" or wrecking any hotel rooms. While we may not yet be at professional level, I can safely say we SOUND like a Klezmer group. Granted, it's a Klezmer group playing at the end of a long performance when both the audience and the musicians are intoxicated –AKA, a normal Klezmer group. I would like to personally thank Cherilyn Chustek for her tremendous work as conductor, working with a huge range of musicians from the new students to professional musicians and everything in-between. Should you play an instrument and be interested in joining us, don't hesitate to contact me for more information! I'm not sure when we'll be ready for a performance, but I can safely say that everyone is enjoying the experience. Speak to you next month when we'll have Tu Bishevat to discuss! Stay warm (with your friends here at ENJC).
