On the afternoon of Monday, June 13, the Margaret Tietz Nursing and Rehabilitation Center held a Celebration of Song featuring noted cantor Sol Zim. Together with the noted singer, dubbed, “America’s Superstar of Jewish Music,” were his sons Craig and Eric, who are better known as “The Singing Lawyers.

The program, which included a keyboard player, trumpet, and full drums, attracted a large array of residents and was a real smashing success. In attendance were Assembly Member David Weprin and Rabbi Mayer Waxman, QJCC Executive Director.

Much thanks is extended to the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the New York City Council and Council Member James Gennaro, as well as the generosity of the Queens Jewish Community Council.
