The Shirah Community Chorus on the Palisades, led by conductor Marsha Bryan Edelman, will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a gala concert, “Honoring Our Founders,” at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades in Tenafly, June 25, 7 p.m. The concert will celebrate the people who worked together to create the Shirah Choir and to enable it to thrive — visionary donors Bernie and Ruth Weinflash (z”l), founding conductor Matthew Lazar, and the JCC’s former CEO, Avi A. Lewinson. The program will feature the world premiere of “Do Justice” by Benjie Ellen Schiller, commissioned in memory of Bernie and Ruth Weinflash to honor this anniversary. A post-concert dessert reception, underwritten by the Weinflash family, follows. Go to jccotp.org/Thurnauer, call (201) 408-1465, or stop by the JCC’s front desk.
