Neighborhood Photo: Chanukah A Cappella Concert at Vilna Shul

On Thursday, December 5, the Vilna Shul, Boston’s center for Jewish culture located in the West End, hosted a Chanukah A Cappella Concert to get into the holiday spirit.

Five a cappella groups performed for an audience of excited families and local community members. Pictured on stage is Brandeis University’s Manginah who performed alongside Honorable Menschen, Northeastern University’s Distilled Harmony, Simmon University’s Simmon Sirens and Boston University’s Kol Echad.

While you’re here … we have a favor to ask. Now in our 10th year, we are covering more community issues than ever before. We are thrilled that our readership has continued to grow rapidly. And unlike other news sites, we have decided to keep all our posts free and open to all. But, advertising doesn’t bring in enough to pay for reporting or editorial work. We do it because we believe community news is important – and we think you do too. If everyone who reads this site, who likes it, puts in a bit to pay for it, then our future would be much more secure. We need your support to keep us going.
