An annual musical weekend in loving memory of Rabbi Jerry Brieger z”l. Rabbi Jerry Brieger z”l was the spiritual leader of Temple Emanuel from 1977 to 2009, and Rabbi Emeritus from 2009 until his death in 2016. He was known not only for his vast knowledge of all things Jewish, but also for his sleight of hand tricks and his love of music. He loved to study, to teach and to sing, and so we honor his memory by celebrating Jewish music.
