Sonoma County's Jubilee Klezmer Ensemble presents a benefit concert and dance for Doctors Without Borders on Sunday, Sept 23 from 3:30-6 pm at the First Presbyterian Church at 939 B St. in Petaluma.

Jubilee Klezmer Ensemble will feature dance and klezmer music from Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean Basin, Israel, Yemen, the Ukraine, Roumania, Moldava, and more! Larry Kass will enchant with beautiful Sephardic love songs and lullabies.

Many generous local vendors are supporting the event, including Della Fattoria (think amazing, freshly baked pastries!), J.M. Rosen (think to-die-for cheesecake!), Taylor Lane (formerly Taylor Maid) Organic Coffee, Petaluma Market, Sprouts Market, Trader Joe, and Safeway!

Ticket price includes food and (non-alcoholic) beverages!

Suggested Donation: Sliding $35 - $75 or more. Your donation on this website will add you to a list of paid attendees. Click the red Donate Now button near the top of this page. You can also mail a check made out to Doctors Without Borders before September 15 . Send check to Paul Alexander/Dance for Humanity, 341 Liberty Street, Petaluma CA 94952

Otherwise, you can bring a check to the event, made out to Doctors Without Borders. Credit card payments made at the event can be accepted, but you will not receive a tax deduction. It is very helpful if you can donate online, allowing us to plan for the number of people who will be coming.

For those who are unable to attend, but would like to offer their support, click the red Donate Now button near the top of this page.

We are grateful to all of these vendors, to the musicians and dance instructor, who are donating their services, and to First Presbyterian Church of Petaluma for hosting the benefit! 

Musicians: Sonia Tubridy - accordion, Sarah Jo Zaharako - violin, Eric Perny - acoustic bass, Phil Lawrence - mandolin, Paul Alexander - clarinets and Larry Kass - Sephardic and Yiddish vocals.

Dance leading and instruction - Karen Bergen.

Here is a link to the main Doctors Without Borders website to see the kind of help they provide to those in dire situations, like epidemics, malnutrition and starvation, war zones, and climate- induced suffering:

We are raising funds and awareness to support Doctors Without Borders’ response to emergencies around the world.  Your donation will be put to work immediately to deliver urgent medical care including treatment for malnutrition and emergency surgery for people around the world.

We sincerely hope that you can join us in supporting the compassionate, life-saving work of this Nobel Prize winning organization.
