Straight from Don’t Tell Mama in Manhattan, The Jewish Heritage Museum of Monmouth County will welcome Rabbi-turned-Cabaret singer, Deborah Zecher in a cabaret-style musical in-person and Zoom event on Sunday, September 18, 2022 at 4PM. Admission is $15 for Museum members, $20 for non-members. This program is presented in conjunction with the Museum’s exhibit on the 50th anniversary of the ordination of Rabbi Sally Priesand, America’s first ordained female rabbi, and is sponsored in part by members of

Monmouth Reform Temple.

 

Rabbi Deborah Zecher describes herself as “A rabbi who sings the Great American songbook and more.  A cabaret singer who loves to tell stories.  A storyteller who uses music and Jewish values to illustrate those stories.” 

 

Rabbi Zecher grew up in Pennsylvania and wanted to become a rabbi from a young age.  She was ordained in 1982, the 49th woman to be ordained following Rabbi Priesand. She served congregations in New York and Maryland, and as chaplain at American University and Williams College, before settling at a congregation in the Berkshires in Great Barrington, Massachusetts as both rabbi and cantor.  In those years, she presented numerous concerts as fundraisers in a show that combined Biblical stories with Broadway songs - and her unique genre was born. In 2014 she launched a successful career as a cabaret singer, and she will bring her special program to the Museum this fall.

 

Seating is limited, so make reservations early for this delightful, in-person and Zoom program by visiting our website at www.jhmomc.org, or by calling 732-252-6990. You won’t want to miss it!
