Mak’hela, whose name means “chorus” in Hebrew, seeks to build bridges through
the universal language of music. The 30-voice chorus draws its repertoire from all
facets of the Jewish world, including songs in Hebrew, English, Yiddish and Ladino.
Led by Music Director Dr. Elaine Broad Ginsberg and accompanied by Jamie
Goodnow, the group includes members from all over the Pioneer Valley and
performs throughout New England.
Long-time Beit Ahavah member Klara Grape joined Mak’hela in its very first
season and remained a dedicated member of the chorus for well over a decade.
She especially enjoyed participating in the Zimriyah International Choral Festival
in Jerusalem. Both Mak’hela and Beit Ahavah are honored to salute Klara’s
legacy and the Music Fund that bears her name.
Please join us for this special service – the first of several musical events Beit
Ahavah will provide with the support of Klara’s Jewish legacy: The Klara
Grape Memorial Music Fund. Klara’s fund is an outgrowth of her strong
commitment to the Create A Jewish Legacy program of the Jewish
Endowment Foundation. Scroll down on the Beit Ahavah
Homepage http://www.beitahavah.org/ for details on how to donate
to the fund.
