A fun evening of song and music at Beth El

October 27, 2022

What’s Happening

Sunday, December 4, 5 pm, Congregation Beth El

Congregation Beth El’s 2022 FUNdraiser will bring music from the Rocky Mountains of Vail, Colorado, to the shores of Norfolk, Virginia.

Cantor Michelle Cohn Levy of B’nai Vail Congregation and Coleen Dieker, an accomplished composer, arranger, and vocalist, will perform and entertain, sharing their passion for music.

Cantor Levy has a few very close local connections. First, Beth El’s members Bernie and Helene Grablowsky heard Cantor Levy lead a mountaintop service in Vail a number of years ago and have encouraged her to come to Tidewater ever since. Plus, Cantor Levy is married to Arlene and Jerry Stein’s grandson, Seth Levy, son of Debbie Stein Levy and Marc Levy.

Making the evening a familiar affair, Debbie and Marc Levy will be in town for this event, as will all of her siblings, the Stein families—Steve and Cindy Stein, Craig Stein, and Lisa and Mark Delevie, chairs for this exciting musical extravaganza.

Teaching and leading Jewish music since the age of 14, Cantor Levy is skilled at engaging adults, teens, and children to enthusiastically join her in song and share in her love of Judaism.

Coleen Dieker, who was inspired to pursue music as a passion and profession after attending the Berklee College of Music, also plays piano, flute, ukulele, and violin. Together, they will share their musical virtuosity, filling Congregation Beth El with Jewish and secular tunes and music that will move and inspire all who attend.
