Senior School Cabaret Club "Night of Healing" Benefits Tree of Life Synagogue

The Senior School Cabaret Club presented A Night of Healing, a benefit concert for the Tree of Life synagogue, on Friday, Dec. 7, in Memorial Hall, raising $505 for the synagogue through donations and a bake sale. The club's inaugural concert was meant to bring the SSA community together to show love, unity and hope after the tragic attack at Tree of Life on Oct. 27.

The Cabaret Club extends its thanks to Metz Culinary Services, the SSA Facilities and Maintenance staff, faculty and staff members Dr. Dan Brill, Christa Burneff and Amy Davidheiser, and sophomores Claire Taylor and Jack Keating for helping to make the concert such a success.
