Friday, June 9 at 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM (Free Admission)
Congregation Beth Israel of Media and Rabbi Linda Potemken invite you to sing and pray with Cantor Joshua Nelson, the ”King of Kosher Gospel!” Cantor Joshua fuses his African-American roots with his Judaism in a style rarely experienced in American synagogues. So unique and popular is his style, that finding room in his schedule to visit Beth Israel is truly a blessing.
Congregation Beth Israel of Media established an annual festival to honor the memory and life of ELIANA ANDERSEN, daughter of Kathy Silberman Andersen and Dan Andersen, sister of Molly, and granddaughter of the late Ruth and Alexander Silberman. Ellie, a beloved fifth grader in our Hebrew School, died on July 25, 2003 after a courageous battle with a brain tumor.
Ellie loved school, her friends and family, and celebrations of all kinds. By combining Ellie’s loves in a festival of the arts, we give our children (and adults) a joyous event to look forward to each year, as well as reflect the Jewish tradition of “hiddur mitzvah,” enhancing community by creating beauty and art.
