The Klezmedics is a group of professional people who love music. The group is made up of eight men and two women. The name Klezmedics is a play on words because most of the group's members are physicians. The Klezmedics has a large repertoire of songs from Yiddish origins as well as some more contemporary Jewish and Hebrew melodies.

They have played at many of our temple functions, such as Deli Night and Music Shabbat, and also at weddings and bar and bat mitzvahs. The Klezmedics have played at a Chanukah Party in Glencoe, Illinois, a temple anniversary in South Haven, Michigan, and a temple fund raiser in Kalamazoo, Michigan. They have also performed at Flossmoor Fest, Walk for Israel, the URJ Regional Biennial in Milwaukee, as well as luncheons for Jewish organizations.

The Klezmedics is directed by Jim Mollin, who also arranges most of the music and plays piano. The other members include Megan Heng - baritone, John Kern - saxophone, Joel Cahan - clarinet and vocals, David Gottlieb - clarinet, Jeremy Marks - percussion, Allan Ruby - violin, Matthew Lipman - viola, Mike Anger - guitar and banjo, and Gae Mollin - synthesized bass. The group has recently released a CD called "Just for Fun." This collection of their favorite numbers is available at the temple gift shop. For more information call Jim Molllin at 708-891-5160.


The membership committee is currently looking for new members for both the temple and our committee. If you want to become involved with the temple, come see us. We meet monthly at BYBS. We are planning a new member Shabbat for this spring.
