The Hillcrest Jewish Center is inviting people to join the “Gathering Time” Concert — A Night To Remember on Saturday, Dec. 1 at 7:30 p.m. Portions of the proceeds will be donated in honor of the Pittsburgh Synagogue victims.

The yearly concert usually helps maintain HJC and its long history of sponsorship and support of local community programs. This year the money will be donated in honor of the victims to HIAS, a highly respected refugee-helping organization. This concert is also a fundraiser for HJC.

Gathering Time is an award-winning folk-rock harmony trio made up of Gerry McKeveny, Hillary Foxsong and Stuart Markus. The trio will be live on stage performing songs from legendary and iconic Jewish artists like Bob Dylan, Neil Diamond, Billy Joel and more.

Tickets are $25 for open seating, $36 for reserved seats, $15 for teens ages 13 to 18 and free for children under 13. Tickets can be purchased at the door before the concert or by calling 718-380-4145.

The concert is being held at the Hillcrest Jewish Center at 183-02 Union Tpke., Fresh Meadows.
