Rabbi Peter Hyman has announced that Temple B’nai Israel’s Susan and Barry Koh February Lecture Series theme is “Jewish Composers: A Jewish Legacy.” The concerts are free and open to the community. Performances start at 7:30 p.m. and will be held at the temple, located at 7199 Tristan Drive (just off Easton Parkway) in Easton.

The Atlantic String Quartet continues in week two of the series on Thursday, February 13, featuring Holly Jenkins and Gregory Mulligan on violin, Karin Brown on viola and Bo Li on cello. Selections from contemporary Jewish composers Philip Glass (1937- ) and Jonathan Leshnoff (1973- ), as well as Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847), are scheduled.
