Featuring Josh Ehrlich, Marilyn Selby Okoshi, and Noah Rachels

The recital will feature a wide range of Jewish music in Hebrew, Ladino, and Yiddish, as well as hazzanut and Israeli traditional and pop songs. Choral works and contemporary compositions written and composed by our graduates will also be performed. The soloists, along with guest artists, will be accompanied by pianist Joyce Rosenzweig, JTS adjunct instructor, and the H.

The concert will also be livestreamed but you must register to attend either the livestream or the in-person event.


John Dellheim (z”l) was a Holocaust survivor who became a pioneer computer programmer at IBM. He deeply loved Judaism and Jewish music and endowed the John Leopold and Martha Dellheim Internship Program and Concert Series to bring Western cantorial music around the United States via the mentors, alumni, and students of the H. L. Miller Cantorial School, thereby perpetuating the performance and transmission of Jewish sacred music to future generations.
