Gene Kelly’s Beth Shalom History

Thursday, June 21, 2018 | 7:30 p.m.
Congregation Beth Shalom | Eisner Commons

Twenty years before he revived the movie musical with An American in Paris and Singin’ in the Rain, Gene Kelly was working for Beth Shalom to produce its annual springtime dance festival. The congregation paid Gene $15 a week to teach dance classes for children on Sunday afternoons to prepare for the festival. Explore this unexpected historical connection of Beth Shalom with pictures and other documents.

Join Eric Lidji as he reveals Beth Shalom’s connection with Gene Kelly. Eric is the director of the Rauh Jewish History Program & Archives at the Heinz History Center.

This event is free and open to the public. Please contact Chris Hall for more information at

Coffee with the Cantor – Perceptions of Modern Judaism

Every Wednesday at 11:00 a.m.
Congregation Beth Shalom | Lehman Center

Come and participate in “Coffee with the Cantor” – a stimulating discussion group led by our Executive Director, Hazzan (Cantor) Rob Menes.

This year we will be discussing “Perceptions of Modern Judaism.” How do Jewish customs and rituals interact with the Christian and secular world of North America? How is Israel perceived in America? Why is there still anti-Semitism in North America?

Throughout the year we will investigate sometimes controversial practices and discuss both the Jewish and non-Jewish reactions to them. Coffee will be provided by the Cantor!

Every Wednesday, 11 AM till 12 in the Lehman Center. Signup not required.
