Jerusalem Quartet comes to NYC

L'shanah tovah
Wishing you and yours peace, prosperity and sweetness in the new year
The High Holidays are a unique time for the Jewish people, a time to reflect, rethink and renew—to challenge yourself with new ideas and transformative experiences that awaken you to the future.

Here at 92Y our doors and our hearts are always open to you. If you wish to celebrate with us, there’s still time to reserve seats for our Main, Youth and Family Services or our Brooklyn services.

Can’t attend in person? You can still observe with our community through our live broadcasts. Tune into JLTV or visit us online.

Aretha Franklin and Clive Davis with Anthony DeCurtis
Imagine it: sitting in the studio with the Queen of Soul herself and legendary producer Clive Davis as they created 10 timeless albums. Well, if you couldn’t be there, you can be here as they take our stage to relive it all—the triumphs and the obstacles.

Now the two icons are back with a new record that’ll thrill anyone who ever wondered how hits by Adele, Barbra Streisand, Alicia Keys and Gladys Knight would sound from Aretha’s powerful pipes. Preview tracks when they visit 92Y for a candid tête-à-tête. Doesn’t exactly happen every night. Our advice? Don’t miss out.

John Lahr’s landmark new book, Tennessee Wiliams: Mad Pilgrimage of the Flesh, grants intimate access to Williams’ brilliant, haunted mind.
