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.

Temple Beth Shalom in San Juan Puerto Rico experienced considerable flooding in their building during Hurricane Maria. Many congregants are also having difficulties and can use our help. we're sure it would be very much appreciated.
The URJ's Camp Newman was destroyed by the fires in Sonoma County, California. There also are about 5 congregations in the area. As soon as we learn of efforts to help, we will let you know.

Thank you for all your help to-date. These disasters have affected many of our fellow congregations and their members.

The Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago is collecting funds for victims of hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
