    Posted ‍‍ב אדר ב' ה תשעג - February 12, 2013 By in Latest News, Lifelong Learning With | Comments Off

    FINDING MIRIAM, a funny, inspiring and poignant one-woman show starring Joyce Friedman, is coming to the Falmouth Jewish Congregation on Sunday, March 17 at 2:00 P.M. Weaving storytelling, song, and puppetry, Joyce brings to life her journey of discovering her relationship with her great-grandmother Miriam and the Biblical Prophetess Miriam. The music for this one-act show draws on songs from the American songbook, Broadway and folk traditions. In her quest to make peace between her great-grandmother and a biblical prophet, Joyce captures the story of an entire generation of American Jewish women and leaves the audience – both women and men, young and old(er) – more connected with their own journeys through time.

    Followed by a dessert reception and Q & A with the artist.

    This performance is scheduled to fall just before Passover (since Miriam plays an important role in the Exodus story), but it provides lively entertainment throughout the year. Come enjoy the afternoon. Bring friends. This production is open to the public. There is no charge for members. Non-member tickets, available at the door, are $10.Joyce & Luciana pottery 001

    Written and Performed by Joyce Miriam Friedman, with Doug Hammer on piano. Directed by Margie Zohn.

  • Soup-er Bowl Success!!

    Soup-er Bowl Sunday 001Our first-ever Soup-er Bowl Sunday fundraiser for the Falmouth Service Center was a marvelous success, raising over $1,000 and bringing together people from throughout our community in supporting this effort. We teamed up with the Waquoit Congregational Church and served a hearty variety of soups–from classic chicken-noodle to Indian-spiced masala-chickpea–along with freshly baked breads.

    Participants were encouraged to take home the bowl from which they ate their soup as a reminder of the ongoing challenges of hunger in our community and our world. A number of artisan bowls, crafted by local potters and woodturners, were sold to raise additional funds for the Service Center.Soup-er Bowl Sunday 005

    Next year’s Soup-er Bowl Sunday is set for January 26, 2014!

  • Music at the Falmouth Jewish Congregation

    Posted By in Latest News, Uncategorized With | Comments Off guitar

    Music plays a key role in worship in our congregation. We draw upon traditional and contemporary settings to enhance our connection to prayer . Once each month a musical ensemble (guitar [Elias Lieberman], accordion [Ted Jellinek], clarinet [Stan Elias], conga/percussion [Tony Scalisi] and voices [Pamela Rothstein, Wendy Nelson, Elias Lieberman]) provides music during our Shabbat service. “Boomer Shabbat”, which brings music of the 1960′s and ’70′s to our worship, is an annual congregational favorite.

    Rabbi Elias Lieberman is a guitarist and singer/songwriter. He has composed many contemporary folk/rock settings for Jewish liturgy, a number of which are incorporated into worship in the Falmouth Jewish Congregation. To listen to some of his compositions, click the following links:
