Cantor Mark Perman returns to Temple Beth Israel for an encore musical performance on Saturday, October 12

by on October 7, 2013

Following his standing room only performance last year, Winsted’s Temple Beth Israel brings back Cantor Mark Perman for an encore performance: “A Trip Down Memory Lane.” The event on Saturday, October 12 begins with a pot luck dinner at 6:00 PM, followed by a Havdala service, and at 7:00 PM Cantor Perman’s musical performance honoring the music and memories of the great Jewish composers whose work graced our stages and our screens for so many generations.

Cantor Mark Perman of the Farmington Valley Jewish Congregation in Simsbury will belt out familiar tunes and lead a musical adventure connecting both Jewish composers and theatrical music. Often accompanying himself on keyboard, Cantor Perman will also sing acappella and invite audience participation. He first appeared on the Broadway stage at 8 years old, and has entertained audiences of all ages and persuasions.

The event will be at Temple Beth Israel at 74 Park Place East across from the town green in Winsted. Join us for what promises to be a fun night of good food, music, conversation, and friendship. For more information and to RSVP for the event contact Lee at 860-379-9378. For more information on Cantor Perman go to http://www.mperman.com/bima-to-broadway.html

Temple Beth Israel was chartered on June 28, 1912 as the Winsted Hebrew Sick Benefit Society. The small group worshiped in a local meeting house and in town hall until 1925 when it purchased and renovated St. James Episcopal Church on Park Place, built in 1840. The 1955 flood destroyed the building. With only $165 in the treasury, dedicated congregants raised funds in small amounts and marshaled sweat equity so that in September 1957 the current building was erected on the original site.
