January, 2017 - Cafe Beth Rishon Cabaret
This year's Cafe Beth Rishon Cabaret night was resplendent with the amazing musical and dancing talent of a diverse cross-section of our TBR community members, our Cantorial intern and of course, our very own musical virtuoso Cantor Ilan Mamber! The performances were varied from Broadway to opera to jazz to folk songs to good old rock and roll and more! The audience greatly enjoyed all of the amazing performances from evolving teen talent to the more seasoned musicians and dancers. The snacks and desserts were devoured before the first act and during intermission by the appreciative crowd! KUDOS to Cantor Ilan Mamber for having the vision to create this wonderful Cabaret evening and keep it going as an annual event!
