Shir Ami concert to benefit Jewish Fund for Human Needs

Shir Ami or “Songs of My People,” a musical group that performs Jewish music from a variety of countries and styles, will give a concert to benefit the Jewish Fund for Human Needs at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 20 at the jewish Community Center’s Arts & Education Building, 2 Millstone Campus Drive.  The concert is free to the public. A $10 donation to the fund is suggested. The concert is part of the Festival of Jewish Life.  

JFHN is a joint project of the Jewish Community Relations Council and the St. Louis Rabbinical Association, with major funding from the Jewish Federation of St. Louis and the Lubin-Green Foundation, that awards small grants to social service agencies with little or no Jewish presence. Through these grants, JFHN helps to support small St. Louis area non-profits, which are providing direct services to those in need of food, housing, health care, education, employment and other essential human needs.
