We’re very excited to welcome back Artist-in-Residence Alan Goodis for a musical weekend on February 28-March 1 at the Temple, including a spirited Shabbat service on Friday and Havdalah followed by a special “coffeehouse” on Saturday evening. He’ll also join our Religious School students on Sunday morning.
A contemporary Jewish musician playing more than 150 events a year, Alan works to build relationships and community through music at congregations, Hillels, youth conventions, and Jewish summer camps.
He has been a favorite at Achduth Vesholom for many years, playing at our camp-style GUCIbat Shabbats, sharing the joy of Jewish music with our students through his School of Jewish Rock and at Religious School, and played at b’nei mitzvah at Achduth Vesholom. A Toronto native, Alan is a proud alum of Goldman Union Camp Institute, our regional URJ camp in Zionsville. He lives in Chicago with his wife, Codi, and daughter, Noa, and is the son-in-law of Temple members Cindi & Richard Wismer.
Please share in a special Shabbat service led by Rabbi Paula Jayne Winnig with Alan on Friday, February 28 at 7 p.m.
Alan will entertain us coffee-house-style on Saturday, February 29 at 7 p.m. at the Temple. Celebrate Leap Day night with Havdalah, music, desserts, and coffee. RSVP to the Temple office at (260) 744-4245 by Wednesday, February 26.
Thank you to the Dr. Harry W. Salon Foundation for its support of Alan’s visit and VP Programs Kathy Sider for coordinating the weekend.
