Since their arrival on the scene in 2015, Nefesh Mountain has been hailed as one of today’s formative boundary-pushing bluegrass Americana bands. They’re among the first to truly give voice and openly represent Jewish American culture, tradition, values, and spirituality in the world of American roots music. 

Nefesh Mountain will perform two concerts* at AJ on Sunday, December 5. At 4:00 PM, there will be a concert (and goodie bag!) for young children and families. Then, at 7:30 PM (following 7:00 PM minyan), the concert for adults will feature original material from the award-winning five-piece New York-based band, as well as a selection of classic bluegrass and folk tunes, and a few of Woody Guthrie’s timeless, and not often performed, Hanukkah songs. The cost is $5 per person, with a $20 maximum per family, for each concert. Please register here.

*All adults entering the synagogue must be vaccinated and wear masks.

A Synagogue Like Ours Shouldn’t Be So Unusual.
But It Is.

It doesn’t happen at every synagogue. But Adath Jeshurun is more than a synagogue;
and it’s been that way for many generations.
