This concert will offer a diverse repertoire featuring the very best of traditional and contemporary Jewish choral music. HaZamir participants recently returned from New York where they performed at Lincoln Center with their HaZamir peers from around the world. HaZamir provides Jewish teens the unique opportunity to gather together, learn sophisticated Jewish choral music, build community, and connect culturally.

FutureCare Cherrywood has partnered with the American Lung Association to provide monthly Better Breathers Club meetings for the community. Meetings are held the 3rd Tuesday of every month, 2-3pm at FutureCare Cherrywood in Reisterstown, MD. The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, May 20th, 2-3pm.
Better Breathers Clubs meet regularly for one to two hours to provide support, education and socialization to people with COPD or another chronic lung disease, their family members and their caregivers. A facilitator coordinates and oversees the meetings, brings in featured speakers, and collects information and feedback from the participants. Members themselves can provide ideas for meeting topics, organize communication networks, and even help plan special events. An American Lung Association staff person provides ongoing support to the group.
COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), the 3rd leading cause of death in the United States, affects 1 in 5 adults over the age of 45. That means you or someone you know could have COPD and not even know it. Millions do.

At this event, Gerry Sandusky will sign copies of his new book, Forgotten Sundays. Customers must purchase a copy of the book from Greetings & Readings. A receipt will be required. A portion of the event’s proceeds will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association. Gerry Sandusky may elect to sign additional memorabilia, if time permits.
Forgotten Sundays is the coming-of-age story of a father-son relationship and the value of a good name, which Gerry Sandusky knows all too well. He has had to endure having an unfortunate name in sports, but to him the Sandusky name means something entirely different: honor, integrity, endurance, and suffering and sadness.
