The Falmouth Jewish Congregation Summer Series opens on Tuesday, June 18 at 7:30 P.M. with a concert featuring soprano Stephanie Horowitz. Ms. Horowitz, a New York-based cabaret and opera singer, also serves the congregation’s High Holy Day cantorial soloist. The program, featuring hits from Broadway and Israel, also draws on the talents of local musicians Ted Jellinek on keyboard, Laird Boles on bass, and Kareem Sanjaghi on percussion. Come enjoy songs that draw on both American and Jewish musical traditions in a relaxed setting with candlelit tables and complimentary refreshments.
