“The annual ‘Evening of Jewish Storytelling, Poetry and Music’ is a celebration of life, community and the arts,” said organizers of the event. “We’re celebrating 24 years of original stories, traditional tales, jokes, folk and contemporary poetry, and dynamic live music from around the world.”

Organizers added, “This event has become extremely popular over the years, drawing participants together for an intimate and cozy evening; a real reminder of times past. Although we are not able to be physically together this year, we will create an opportunity to enjoy the warmth of our community and richness of our heritage. With a virtual presentation, people who live in other locales can easily attend. There will be a mix of original poetry, personal stories and Yiddish songs. Presenters represent a cross section of our community. The event is family-friendly.”
