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.

Help for Elementary School Children

Ibarra Elementary School in City Heights serves many families living below the poverty line, many of whom are refugees from around the globe. These families struggle to provide the basic necessities for their children.

In December we will help by collecting:

New or gently used sweatshirts and jackets, girls and boys sizes extra small through large, men’s and women’s sizes small and medium
New children’s socks – all sizes and designs
New children’s underwear – all sizes

Contact Barbara Pollack at (619) 224-3087 for any questions on this project.

Bring your donations to the white barrel in the lobby of the Temple office building, and the Social Action Committee will deliver them
