12-21-2000 Chanukah klezmer concert for Ring House residents.
The first night of Chanukah, the festival of lights, was made a little brighter for residents of Ring House, a retirement home in Rockville, Maryland, when Am Echad organized a concert of local klezmer musicians for them. The audience enjoyed many Jewish melodies, superbly played by clarinetist Daniel Rozas and accordionist Joan Grauman, who donated their time and talent to brighten the evening for so many. The concert was dedicated to Jewish seniors, both in Russia and the U.S. Charles E. Smith Jewish Day School 4th-grader Leo Feldblyum lit the first candle, which was dedicated to seniors living in Russia.
