Celebrating Women’s Voices

An amazing event will transpire on
Wed, March 10, 2010
5:30pm – 8:30pm
Central Synagogue
123 East 55th Street
New York, NY

Inspired by artist Judy Chicago’s Dinner Party, an installation on permanent exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum celebrating famous women, we present a new take on a uniquely Jewish ‘dinner party’—the Passover seder. Join us to hear the glorious voices of Jewish women who will present familiar and not so familiar seder melodies reflecting the richness of Jewish music and the spiritual and aesthetic power of women’s voices. The evening will begin with a light supper and study of rabbinic texts taught by Rabbi Judith Hauptman, Talmud professor at Jewish Theological Seminary.…
