This PBS American Masters 1998 documentary of the life and work of
Leonard Bernstein (produced, written and directed by Susan Lacy) is the
definitive look at the outstanding life and career of the world renowned
composer, conductor, pianist and educator.

Leonard Bernstein was one of the best known and most compelling
figures to emerge in classical music in the 20th century, bringing
symphonic music to a whole new audience, and this documentary follows
his life and career from his first concert as a conductor in 1943 to his final
one at Tanglewood. Reaching for the Note features rare footage of his
concerts, home movies, selections from the Broadway shows he helped
compose, and interviews with his friends, relatives, and colleagues,
including Stephen Sondheim, Jerome Robbins, Michael Tilson Thomas, and
Seiji Ozawa. Reaching for the Note shows “Lenny” in all his humanity,
struggling through dark times, and in all his glory, doing what he did best -
inspiring musicians and making music come alive.

Come join us on Sunday, January 21st at 2 pm as we celebrate the life
of this local music legend!
              Our Chanukah Party Rocked!

The Chanukah party was a great success this year.  The vestry was
filled to bursting with friends, families and newcomers, enjoying comfort
food and our special entertainment, "Ezekiel's Wheels Klezmer Band." 
Spirits were high as everyone moved and clapped along with the music,
and some even danced!  It was a wonderful way to usher out 2017.  If
you missed the party, please be sure to look at the January bulletin to see
a collage of photos from that day.

Then when we woke up on Monday, we were greated with a terrific
article written by Marc Dion on the cover of the Herald News.  Click the
link below to go to the article.  The next link will take you to the website
where Ezekiel's Wheels Klezmer Band sells their CD's.
Martin Luther King Day Breakfast and Celebration at BCC. Please
join them and many others in the Fall River community for a free
breakfast and the MLK Day program at BCC on Monday, January 15th,
beginning at 8:30 AM.

he TBE celebration of Tu BiShevat (Jewish New Year for Trees) will
take place on Friday, February 2nd beginning at the usual Kabbalat
Shabbat service time of 5:30 pm. Although the actual date of Tu
BiShevat this year is Wed, Jan. 31st, we have moved it to this first Friday
in February to make it easier for more of our members to experience this
special mystical, nature-oriented “seder,” which involves the eating of a
wide variety of fruits and nuts and sharing various types of wine.
Intrigued? Come see what it’s all about!

Save the Date for our TBE Purim Celebration Wed, Feb. 28th.
