Many people in Tidewater already know Sam Glaser and his music, since he performed in concert last year at Temple Emanuel to an audience of more than 300 people. This year, the Beach temple is bringing Glaser back to Tidewater, but to a new venue. Congregation Beth El will host the musician’s expanding fan base, reaching out to the entire community.

Glaser brings an energy to his performances that electrifies audiences. His music is soulful and catchy, wise and witty, seasoned and youthful. His storytelling style captures the imagination.

The gifted musician and performer makes an extraordinary effort to connect with his audience. Before the concert is over, participants feel like they are “Sam’s personal friend.” Often, he will do a duet with someone from the community or sing with a local choir.

Universal in his appeal, Glaser’s devoted fans range from members in the Reform and Conservative movements to the Modern Orthodox and Chassidim. He has appeared in many synagogues, JCCs and at national conventions, as well as at Dodger Stadium, on Broadway and in the White House. Glaser travels the world in concert, having performed in Sydney, London, Hong Kong and Tel Aviv.

An informed and committed Jew, the entertainer sings and speaks from the heart and leads by example. His passion and music ignite the human spirit.

Tickets will go on sale in July. Call Temple Emanuel to start the Jewish New Year in song.
