“BERNIE KAPLAN, THE MUSIC IN ME” CONCERT:
Congregation B’nai Zion played host to a wonderful musical event that served to debut songs by long-time
CBZ member BERNIE KAPLAN
Bernie, a member of the B’nai Zion choir, does not know how to play an instrument or notate music, but in his younger days he composed songs in his head while driving from state-to-state for work. For the past two years, the talented NANCY 3 HOFFMAN has worked with Bernie to solidify the songs that his mind held; Nancy assisted with lyrics, harmonies and so on.
The hard work came to fruition at the April 19th concert, narrated by Nancy 3, at which popular local performers
ERIC HALEY and MICHAEL ROBINSON beautifully presented Bernie’s music. Michael Robinson also lent his musical expertise toenhancing the final arrangements for Bernie’s songs. CBZ’s sanctuary was packed for this event and the audience evenincluded Bernie’s cousin, Rachelle Elias, who travelled from California to be in Key West for this special occasion.
The program included a song composed for Bernie’s sister, Rose Einhorn, who was not able to attend.
A sumptuous reception - prepared by Rebetzen Nadia Dudai and sponsored by Bernie’s sister, Mae Mcmahan
followed the musical program. Many others assisted in making the event a success, including:
Rabbi Shimon Dudai, Dr. Fred Covan, synagogue president, and The CBZ Board of Directors,
Kenny Weschler, Connie Gilbert, Liz Young, Karen Grant Margil, Karen Leonard & Aaron Wechter,
BG Carter, and Lucy Page & Jan Bergh.
Together with his two sisters, Mae & Rose, Bernie has been an integral member of the Key West community for decades.Being able to experience the tunes that Bernie held within him and to learn of the path followed to achieve that was an exceptional opportunity for the audience members lucky enough to attend.
Thank you to everyone who made this fabulous event possible!!
The past few years have been difficult healthwise for Bernie, and he passed away on July 24, 2016.
He was a treasure to all who knew him.
