Joshua Nelson - The Prince of Kosher Gospel
Can you imagine?  Kosher Gospel!!!
Only in the hands of this disciple of Mahalia Jackson could such a genre be possible (and so mind-bogglingly fantastic). Here is a Black Jew from New Jersey who takes the traditional Jewish liturgy and blasts it into the stratosphere with percussive keyboards, vocal virtuosity and a powerhouse trio of back-up singers. Utterly unrecognizable and infinitely inspiring. Oprah loves him and has had him on the show and at private functions repeatedly. He tours the world - festivals, congregations, Hollywood. Now, he's coming here to Dorshei Emet!
On Saturday, January 26th at 8:00 P.M., 
Tickets - $25 General Admission; $10 for students
Grab a friend or two (or ten!) and come together for an evening of Hebrew Soul as only Joshua Nelson can deliver. Ranee Lee, star of the upcoming Mahalia Jackson Musical at the Segal Centre will also be in the audience. This is one act you don't want to miss. Call the office today at (514) 486-9400 or go online at:
