Elana Jagoda & Saul Kaye – Concert & Havdalah
February 26, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
With the generous support of the Diskin Music Fund, we are excited to bring Jewish Music innovators Saul Kaye & Elana Jagoda to Temple Emanuel!
Havdalah & Concert – Saturday, February 26 at 7PM
Elana Jagoda is a prayer leader (she joined Temple Emanuel for an amazing virtual Friday night service last year!), music educator, performer and composer who brings soul and innovation to Jewish music. She adds new dimensions to this genre by blending her energetic folk-rock vibe with her passion for world music. Elana infuses a unique spiritual quality into the music she brings to both performance and prayer.
International touring artist Saul Kaye is pioneering a new genre of music: Jewish Blues. Like his great-grandfather who blazed a trail from Russia to South Africa to trade cattle between warring African Tribes, Saul has brought together the sounds of the struggle of the African Slaves in this country with the history of the Jewish slavery experience. If you can imagine Muddy Waters meets Shlomo Carlebach, you’ve got an artist here who is bringing something new to modern Jewish Music and bridging the gap between the Delta and the Torah.
