In Every Age!

Zemer Chai extends our thanks and hearty congratulations to our special guests - HaZamir of Baltimore. Ancient words came alive with soaring new melodies in "In Every Age!", a choral concert presented by Zemer Chai, DC's Premier Jewish Choir. The concert took place on Wednesday, May 28th, 2014, at Ohr Kodesh Congregation in Chevy Chase.
