(GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass.) – Jewish soul singer Neshama Carlebach, the protege and musical heir of her father, the late Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, who in the 1960s and ‘70s brought an approach to Jewish liturgical music that was steeped in tradition yet utterly contemporary, will perform with her band at the Mahaiwe on Saturday, November 8, 2014, at 8pm. The concert, presented by Rimon: Resource Center for Jewish Spirituality, will also feature Rev. Milton Vann and members of the Glory to God Singers, lending the event an ecumenical feel.

Neshama has dedicated herself to preserving her father’s legacy, bringing people together and healing suffering in the world through music. The concert will honor Reb Shlomo on the 20th anniversary of his passing.
Milton Vann is a gospel recording artist and Associate Pastor of Strait Gate the Church at Westchester.
