When the Brewers beat the Cubs on May 1, as they most surely will, it will be with the singing support of Cantor David Barash.
Cantor David Barash from Congregation Emanu-El B’ne Jeshurun will be singing the National Anthem at the Milwaukee Brewers vs. Chicago Cubs baseball game on Sunday, May 1 at 1:10 p.m.
“It’s been a privilege to sing the National Anthem when our congregation is having an outing to the ballfield,” Barash said.
Around 70 congregants will be in attendance at the game cheering on both the Brewers and Barash. The congregation has attended Wisconsin sporting events together a number of times in the past.
“I grew up in Wisconsin, and have spent most of my life in this state,” Barash said. “It has been fun to sing at many different venues including the Milwaukee Brewers, the Milwaukee Bucks, the Admirals, the Wave and the Chinooks games.”
In the future, Barash hopes to have the opportunity to sing at a Green Bay Packers game, as well as a Wisconsin Badgers football game as he grew up a few blocks from the stadium.
For the Brewers game, Barash is excited to get out on the field, wear a headset and sing to the Wisconsin community.
“I look forward to a great game between the Brewers and the Cubs,” Barash said. “In the words of our esteemed Commissioner Emeritus Bud Selig in a recent interview, ‘Go, Brewers, Go!’”
