Congregation Temple Israel involved with Celebrating Art for Senior Engagement Festival

For the second year in a row, Congregation Temple Israel is proud to take part in Celebrating Art for Senior Engagement festival, presented by nonprofit Maturity and Its Muse. CASEfest is the premier and only area-wide festival dedicated to art and seniors in the region. “One of the reasons CASEfest exists is to ignite people, especially seniors, to become enthused about art and get involved themselves. Art is about enjoying life and having fun,” said Lynn Hamilton, creator of Celebrating Art for Senior Engagement and founder of Maturity and Its Muse.

During CASEfest, Temple Israel is hosting a free concert for the community. Chavurat Shira, Congregation Temple Israel’s volunteer choir, will be performing choral and solo music, featuring favorites from Broadway, Jewish melodies, and more. The choir is led by Patrice Kaplan with piano accompaniment from Dan Vizer.

Choir members and soloists include Amy Cohen, Rabbi Amy Feder, Ed Goldberg, Debbi Goldstein, Harry Knopf, Jerry Kraus, Nancy Litz, Betsy Mehlman, Debbie Schultz, Ron Van Fleet, Dan Vizer, and Michelle Weltman.
