Benefit concert – a message from Cantor Janece Cohen

Last Friday night, my dear friend Karla Ember, beloved cantorial soloist of  Congregation Chaverim and longtime Tucson Jewish community musician was violently attacked and gravely wounded. She is now in intensive care and fighting for her life.

Members of our Jewish community are trying to help Karla and her family by raising funds to help with medical and living expenses during this difficult time. We invite you to join us for a “Concert of Healing and Hope,” which will take place this Sunday, Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. at the Tucson Jewish Community Center.  Performers include the Tucson Jewish Youth Choir, Jewish Community Choir, Shirim, Congregation Or Chadash Choir, On Broadway and Klezmerkaba.

Suggested donation is $36. Make checks payable to Cong. Or Chadash with Karla in the memo line and drop off or mail to Cantor Janece E. Cohen at Or Chadash, 3939 N. Alvernon Way, Tucson, AZ 85718. For more information, call 512-8500.

Thank you very much for your support and compassion.
