Three synagogues in the Chicagoland area bring in Maxwell Street musicians to lead rehearsals and performances with their own House Klezmer Bands comprised of congregation members.
These grassroots bands perform for Simchat Torah, Hanukkah and Purim celebrations, as well as playing at nursing homes and festivals.
If your congregation is interested in starting its own band, contact us
at (847) 675-4800.
