Beth Weizmann, the Lamm Library, the Zionist Council of Victoria and B’nai B’rith Victoria co-hosted a concert for senior citizens from Jewish Care produced by B’nai B’rith’s Esther Gross at Beth Weizmann on Mitzvah Day, Sunday 17 November 2013.

Music students from Sholem Aleichem College’s choir wowed the audience with songs from Broadway in Yiddish.  Young violinist brothers, Nathan and Max Needleman from Bialik College played Chopin and Brahms to an astonished audience.

Fifteen-year-old Noa Opat, representing the King David School, sang from musical comedy.

Eight students from Leibler Yavneh College with Director of Music, Jonathan Skovron on guitar, sang in Hebrew; their ‘Yerushalayim shel zahav’ brought the house down!

Afternoon tea was kindly donated by ‘Cakes of Art’, ‘Eshel’, ‘Goldies Biscuits’, ‘Kosher Classique’, ‘Menorah Catering’, ‘Naomi’s Kitchen’, ‘Peter Unger Catering’, ‘ To Catch a Thief’, and ‘The Shook’.

The Concert was part of 61 Mitzvah Day activities Australia-wide, organised by inspirational co-ordinator, Judy Feiglin.
