Special guest Jordan Klapman presents: “Oy, Tannenbaum! How Jewish Songwriters Wrote the Great Christmas Songs”

Most people know that “White Christmas” was written by Irving Berlin, but did you know that at least 15 of the top 25 secular holiday songs were written by Jews?

Come hear Jordan explain how this happened, and learn why these popular holiday songs were basically written to express universal values.

Pianist and lecturer Jordan Klapman has entertained Oraynu in the past with his in-depth musical talks on George Gershwin, Irving Berlin and the History of Jewish Pop and Rock ‘n’ Roll.

Non-members welcome: $15
