Cantors of Wisconsin to hold Purim for hunger 


A Cantors & Friends Purim Party, which will be fundraising for the Hunger Task Force, will be held at 7 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 21. 

This is a follow-up to a Chanukah concert offered in December.  

‘We are focusing on the concept of matanot l’evyonim, or gifts to those in need,” said Cantor David Barash, who is an organizer for the group. “We are adding this other dimension to the concert.” 

People who “attend” the virtual event may donate to the Hunger Task Force at 

The familyfriendly event is to include songs like Haman Calypso,” “I like hamentashen,” “You Can Change the World,” and “Boo-Hamian Rhapsody.” 

The Cantors of Wisconsin are Barash, Jerry Berkowitz, Karen Berman, David Blumberg, Enid Bootzin Berkovits, Marsha Fensin, Nancy Gorens-Edelman, Deborah Martin, Jacob Neimi, Richard Newman, David Perper, Michele Rozansky, Brian Serle, Jeremy Stein and Faith Steinsnyder. Most are to participate. Rabbi and Cantor Brian Serle, of La Crosse, is a recent addition to the group.  

Most members of Cantors of Wisconsin are to participate in the event, which is to have cantors singing songs individually, handing off to one another
