Expresso Yourself! The Best of Broadway!
September 6, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 amFree
Jewish Family & Children’s Service’s September Memory Café will feature the Best of Broadway music with Baruch Koritan at Beth El Congregation, 1118 W. Glendale Avenue in Phoenix on Thursday, September 6, 2018 from 10 to 11:30 am.
The Memory Café is for those with memory loss and their care partners. The challenges of living with memory loss can strain or even sever social connection at a time when it is needed most. Memory Cafés are one way individuals with memory loss and their care companions are coming together to make new friendships and support one another.
Baruch Koritan has served as Cantor at Temple Beth Shalom of the West Valley since 1992 and is also on staff at the Bureau of Jewish Education. He has played the lead roles of many Broadway shows. Baruch will delight and engage all with a wide variety of memorable melodies from the Golden Age of Broadway hits, spanning several decades. The selections will be presented through stories and song with Baruch sharing anecdotes that capture the magic of these favored and treasured tunes. Singing along is always welcome!
The Café is a meeting place for those with changes in their thinking or memory, mild cognitive impairment or dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease or a related disorder, along with their care partners. Offered on the first Thursday of the month, each Café has a new theme and includes meaningful, fun activities to engage the participants and stimulate their minds and bodies. Socialization is a key component to the cafés, as they are meant to be a place to relax, meet others and have fun in a nurturing and accepting environment. Coffee and snacks are provided.
There is no charge to attend, but registration is required. To register or for further information, please e-mail Kathy.firstname.lastname@example.org or call Kathy at 602-452-4627.
