Jake Shulman-Ment and Pete Rushefsky: Old World Klezmer String Duo

Online ticketing is now closed. Tickets may be purchased at the door.

Congregation Beth Israel is excited to present a concert featuring two of the most recognized names on the international Yiddish music scene: Jake Shulman-Ment and Pete Rushefsky.

Long before klezmer music encountered the sounds of clarinets and brass, the fiddle and tsimbl duo expressed the hearts and souls of Ashkenazim across Central and Eastern Europe. Jake and Pete have been performing this entrancing music throughout the globe together for over two decades. From rollicking dance tunes to old spiritual melodies, philosophical Yiddish folk songs and virtuosic original compositions, this will be a musical experience not to miss.
