Ukuleles are fun and easy to play but are they Jewish? You’d be surprised! Come to this highly enjoyable and informative ukulele workshop run by David and Rebecca Krycer. Learn to strum and pick out the melodies of Jewish songs and hear some fascinating stories about the Jewish connections to this popular instrument. There will be a lockup to store your ukulele during the festival. It would be handy to already know some chords on the ukulele. All are welcome, no ukes are needed if you just want to come and listen.
