Please join us to welcome Chanukah with music!

Rocking Chanukah Concert 

with Lazer Lloyd

December 2, 2018, 7:00pm

Lazer Lloyd will bring his unique blend of roots rock, Americana, folk, blues and country with a psychedelic twist to Harlem for a special Chanukah holiday concert open to the public at the historic Old Broadway Synagogue on Sunday, December 2nd at 7PM.  This special show comes on the heels of his sold out NYC show in late October and will provide the Harlem audience an opportunity to hear this exciting artist live for the first time in a community that is a pillar in the foundation of the arts and music performance in the United States. Tickets available at or at the Synagogue beginning at 6:00pm the night of the performance.

Lazer's breakout hit "Backstreets" is about to hit 1,000,000 streams. He is now preparing studio material with several important producers: Eric Paul (Townes van Zandt, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Kris Kristofferson) and Chris Bell (Don Henley, Eagles, Eric Johnson etc) both for release in 2019.

Lazer's global social media community enjoy sharing clips from his concerts, touring everywhere from New York and Toronto to Winston-Salem and Bulls Gap TN, from Mammoth Lakes CA to Lindale TX, from Nashville to Miami.  A loyal audience tunes in to his weekly personalized live feeds from his back porch overlooking the Jerusalem mountains.

Meet the man in person and you experience his kind aura through the eyes that crinkle with his frequent smiles, the humor in his stories, his concern for others and always in the personal attention he gives when listening to you. Meet him on Facebook or Instagram and even through the lens of social media his positive message shines through, from the lyrics in his music videos to the personal responses he gives to comments, and his hugely popular live Sunday morning Facebook segment, a mix of music, inspiration, and community. See him in concert and you're treated to all of it at once - the stories, the care and the love all delivered with his masterful musicianship and amazing guitar work. Not to mention that deep, warm voice!

Born and raised in the U.S., as a young man Lloyd followed a musical path to Israel where he still makes his home with his wife and children. Lloyd tours the world much of the year, meeting people from all over the country and world, listening to their life stories, absorbing their struggles and victories.  Look for the videos that will tell the whole story of the tour on his Facebook page. Better yet, come experience Lazer Lloyd in person on December 2nd in Harlem!

In memory of Isaac Meyers, z"l

Image result for isaac meyers
To the Old Broadway Synagogue community and beyond:

We are approaching the tenth yahrzeit (10 Adar,  February 25, 2018) of our friend and member of the Old Broadway Synagogue, Isaac Meyers. Isaac was a doctoral student in Classics at Harvard. He was a kind, gentle young man who was beloved by everyone, especially children. He is sorely missed. There is a Facebook page in his memory which can be reached here. In addition, at the initiative of some of Isaac's friends, we are establishing the Isaac J. Meyers Memorial Fund for the benefit of the Old Broadway Synagogue. If you would like to make a donation, please see the letter below. Also, please include a note along with your donation that it is for the Isaac J. Meyers Memorial Fund. May Isaac's memory be a blessing for us.

Paul Radensky
Old Broadway Synagogue

Dear friends,
As Isaac’s 10th yahrzeit (the anniversary of his passing) approaches, some of his friends wanted to honor his memory through a collective donation to a cause close to his heart. Isaac’s family suggested that we contribute to The Old Broadway Synagogue in New York City-- Isaac’s “home” shul (synagogue) when he visited New York. We are excited to announce that Old Broadway will now be establishing a fund in Isaac’s memory.
You can make a donation to the Old Broadway Synagogue’s new Isaac J. Meyers Memorial Fund via PayPal through this link:

Or you can send a check made out to "Old Broadway Synagogue" to:

Old Broadway Synagogue
15 Old Broadway
New York, NY 10027

Whether you donate via PayPal or check, please note that your donation is in memory of Isaac Meyers. Your money will go into the new fund for general synagogue use, and Old Broadway will inform Isaac’s family of your donation.
Please contact Jill Smith at if you have any questions. Thank you very much.
