Produced by Lank Beach Productions


 



We are grateful for the ongoing support of our sponsors.

 

     

Through the universal languages of music and dance, the Sarah Sommer Chai Folk Ensemble reminds audiences around the world what a joy and privilege it is to be alive. Designed by Hilary Druxman to commemorate Chai’s 50th anniversary, this handcrafted sterling silver wearable art honours the past while propelling us into the future with renewed energy. Net proceeds will help Chai continue to share Jewish culture and history, find our commonality and embrace our passion and humanity.

Celebrate Chai. Celebrate Life.

The Chai Folk Ensemble has been widely acclaimed as North America's oldest and largest Israeli folk dance ensemble. Founded in 1964 by the late Sarah Sommer, Chai has built an international reputation for the unique blend of international dance, music and song that gives it its name...Hebrew for "alive".

A truly all-encompassing Jewish cultural experience, Chai is made up of more than 40 dancers, singers and musicians. It is the only Israeli folk ensemble in North America to perform exclusively to live musical accompaniment.
