For the opening event of our 50th anniversary year, Irving and Linda Seidman will discuss and read from Irv’s book, The Jewish Community of Amherst: The Formative Years, 1969-1979, with key stories from interviews with many of the founders. Following the talk, enjoy afternoon tea and a special concert by the JCA Klezmer Ensemble made up of JCA members and musicians from the local community with soulful clarinet, weeping fiddles, playful trombone, old-world accordion, thumping bass, driving percussion and Yiddish vocals.
