      Dear Friends,

      Tonight, 16th of Marcheshvan, is the 11th yahrtzeit of Rabbi
      Shlomo Carlebach, and his songs, stories and teachings continue to be
      a profound source of inspiration to so many. This weekend is
      commemorated all over the world with great musical events, including
      lots of great NY concerts (see below). And see the eulogy I wrote
      for Reb Shlomo a few years ago:

      Tonight, Thursday, Nov 17 at 7:45pm I'm giving my weekly
      class on "A Practical Guide to Leading the Davening," focusing on
      tunes and nusach, especially how to be a chazzan in the Carlebach
      style, for Friday night davening and Shabbat morning. No musical or
      religious background necessary. The class is not just for those who
      lead davening, but also for people who want a greater appreciation of
      the mechanics of chazzanut. At my shul: Congregation Ramath Orah,

        Madof's excellent guitar, from the gentle "Jerusalem" to the hard
        rock "Ein Gedi" and "Jacob and Esau." Check out Rashanim in concert
        on Nov 30, and see http://jonmadof.com

        Have a great Shabbos!
