Shabbat Shira — literally the Sabbath of Song – is so called because it is the Shabbat on which the parsha is read containing the song sung by Israel after the splitting of the Red Sea. And so, Shabbat Shira – which fell this year on Jan. 10 – was the perfect occasion for Congregation Kol Haverim in Glastonbury to pay tribute to Cantorial Soloist Tami Cherdak, who is celebrating her “chai” anniversary with the Reform shul. “Music and Magic” was the theme of the day (18 years of making magical music at Kol Haverim!) and Dr. Aaron Sherman, a professional magician, was guest performer. A band, vocalists and cups players were also on hand to make the celebration complete.
