OUR MUSIC PROGRAM DEPENDS ON THE CANTOR STANLEY LIPP MUSIC FUND
While there are many wonderful ways for you to support Congregation Agudath Achim, before you read our musicians’ bios below, this is our opportunity to point out that your new or increased support of the Cantor Stanley Lipp Music Fund can ensure that the 2013-2014 music programming will be as rich and full as that for this year.
Your generous contributions to the Cantor Stanley Lipp Music Fund are underwriting this year’s music programming, but the fund will definitely need refunding in order for us to be able to continue for 2013-2014.
Thank you for all you do to support the congregation. Your special attention to our musical life will pay very evident dividends.
