Some 200 people attended a concert at the JCC on the Palisades on Sunday that raised about $3,500 for earthquake relief in Japan.

The concert featured the Young People’s Chorus at the JCC’s Thurnauer Music School, directed by Emma Brondolo, an a capella group from Tenafly, “Nothing but Treble,” and violinist Ray Iwazumi.

Avi Lewinson, executive director, said: “Our Jewish tradition tells us, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ And so we gather here tonight for a ‘Concert for Japan’ in order to express our concern and solidarity.”
