Among those performing songs from "The Jewish American Songbook" are Isaac Blech, Stephen Bogardus, Bernard Dotson, Deborah Grausman, Valerie Lemon, Dana Lorge, William Michals, Barbara Minkus, Mark Nadler, Lee Roy Reams, Eric Rudy, Camille Saviola, Lauren Schaffel, Marilyn Sokol and Karen Wyman. Paul Chamlin is the musical director.
Producer Randie Levine-Miller, who also hosts, said in a recent statement, "In the old days, Actors' Temple member Sophie Tucker would get the Shuberts to donate a theater and she would produce an annual show. The money raised would help pay for the Temple's yearly expenses. Now they just have me to gather my theater and cabaret performer friends. It's always a swell party, as well as a mitzvah!"
Rabbi Jill Hausman added, "We're hoping this year's benefit will help us to restore the beautiful stained glass windows as well as other parts of our aged synagogue which are in dire need of repair."
