_____________________

SING A NEW LIGHT is a new program to commemorate those souls who were killed in the October 27, 2018 shooting at the Tree of Life Building in Pittsburgh, PA. New Light Congregation, established in 1909, was the smallest of the three synagogues affected. Three of the New Light members who were murdered, Dan Stein, Rich Gottfried and Mel Wax, were pillars of the congregation. Dan and Rich formed the choir. In our martyrs' memory SING A NEW LIGHT was born, a joyful musical series engaging both New Light Congregation and the Pittsburgh Jewish Community, whereby Jewish college a cappella choirs from around the country will visit Pittsburgh to join the New Light Shabbat services and conduct a community wide performance. In addition, the choir will conduct workshops with local Pittsburgh community partners to re-dedicate the choir.

ABOUT MAGEVET

We are proud to welcome Yale University’s Magevet return to Pittsburgh to kick off the program. Founded in 1993, Magevet is one of the nation’s premiere Jewish a cappella singing groups. A coed ensemble comprised of undergraduate students at Yale University, Magevet is known for its sweet blend of voices, unique arrangements, and lighthearted sense of humor. The group’s diverse repertoire spans modern Israeli pop and Renaissance choral pieces to Yiddish folk tunes and Zionist classics. The members of Magevet are equally diverse: engineers and historians, Jews and Gentiles, New Yorkers and Californians, all united by camaraderie and a love of singing.
