Israeli soprano Tehila Nini Goldstein will be among the performers during the June 25 Pittsburgh Jewish Music Festival at Rodef Shalom Congregation's Levy Hall.

The Pittsburgh Jewish Music Festival will perform in concert at 7:30 p.m. Monday at the Rodef Shalom Congregation’s Levy Hall in Oakland.

“Hebrew Melodies” is an evening of intimate vocal and instrumental chamber music, including classical music and Yiddish culture, along with several manuscripts seldom played in the last century, according to a news release.

Chamber Music Pittsburgh collaborates with the festival for the first time to present this program of rare miniatures by the Russian violinist-composer Joseph Achron, as performed by musicians from the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and Israeli soprano Tehila Nini Goldstein.

The vocal portion of this program will be sung in Yiddish, Hebrew, and Russian with projected English translations, the release adds.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets are $25.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
