      Dear friends,

      This weekend there's a lot of great Jewish music going on.
      I guess it's the last chance before the summer really hits. I'll be
      performing to dedicate a new Torah scroll, and then I'll head over
      to Central Park for the kumsitz. Maybe this week we won't be rained
      out. Enjoy!

      Tonight, Friday June 27 at 8pm I will be leading a Shabbat
      dinner with lots of singing for JICNY, Jewish International
      Connection New York, a community of young professional foreign Jews
      who hail from countries around the globe. If you're from another
      country, check out all of their great social and educational events:
