You can view the service on our LiveControl https://venue.livecontrol.io/watch/tbanj stream or on our TBA Facebook page also streaming.
Our folk service will again feature traditional prayers and melodies interspersed with music by American singer/songwriters such as Bob Dylan, Lisa Gutkin of the Klezmatics, the late John Prine, The Carter Family, Steven Foster and more. Our worship will be enhanced by these traditional and new folk songs that will inspire us during these challenging times.
Bob Mellman’s guitar playing and musical compositions have been heard on National Public Radio, commercials, and even on the Dr. Demento radio show. He plays bass guitar and sings in The Reticents, a band that specializes in the songs of Bob Dylan. He has an extensive knowledge of traditional and popular American music, and enjoys incorporating those songs into Jewish liturgy….especially when he has Cantor Epstein (his guitar student) as his singing partner.
