Gam Ki Elech: Turning Our Sorrows Into Song

Sunday, January 21st | 7:30 PM | Beth Am Sanctuary

Beth Am Synagogue is honored to host the album launch concert of Gam Ki Elech: Turning Our Sorrows Into Song, an album of original melodies given to Ilan and Sherri by their son Shemaryah Zichri, of blessed memory. Rabbi Ilan has been the house drummer for Uncle Ira’s Hebrew Washboard Ensemble at Beth Am for the last 3 years, and now he and Sherri along with other Washboard members and musical friends will launch the album here at Beth Am.

The 13 melodies on the album are all from our liturgy and psalms – these melodies have brought hope to Ilan and Sherri and already to many others. The special album launch concert will mark Shemaryah’s 2nd yahrtzeit, with an evening of music, memory, healing, and hope.

There will be an optional Ma’ariv service at 7 PM. Childcare will be available in the Moadon.
