San Diego Jewish Men's Choir Concert
Music is the soul of the Jewish people. Our lives are touched by music continuously, and our people have been involved with music since the beginning of time. When King Saul was melancholy, he was cheered by the music of David, the shepherd. When King David wrote the Psalms he instructed a conductor to put them to music. King Solomon, the wisest of all men, culminated his writings with the Song of Songs.

Join us on Sunday, August 13 at 3 pm for an uplifting afternoon of well-loved Jewish music with the award-winning San Diego Jewish Men's Choir! The program will include selections from the choir's upcoming tour and from their two award-winning albums.

Doors open at 2:30 pm.  Concert starts at 3 pm.
General Admission: $18
Children: $10

Tickets will be available at the door.  Please bring exact change or a check.

This month, many stores have school supplies on sale before students return in the fall. If you can help these students who can’t afford basic school needs or pick up a few extras while buying some for your own children or grandchildren, we appreciate donations of these items:
