New York Times (and #1 internationally bestselling) author Steve Berry will keynote the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum’s 2014 black-tie Opening Night Gala and exhibition preview on October 18, 2014 at 7 p.m. The event will take place at the Mansion located at 295 West Avenue, Norwalk. Berry comes to the gala through his History Matters foundation and 100 percent of the proceeds from his appearance will go toward fundraising for the Mansion.

During the event entitled, Mystery at Elm Park: The Mansion’s Pen and Inkwell Gala, co-chaired by Michael DiScala and Joseph Passero, guests will have the opportunity to meet Berry and hear about his latest novel, The Lincoln Myth. Berry and his wife, Elizabeth, are the creators of the History Matters foundation dedicated to historic preservation. Trustee and Gala co-Chair Joe Passero said, “This is an exciting evening where our generous supporters and people from all across the region can come together to celebrate history, the arts, and a National Historic Landmark that is one of Connecticut’s most vibrant and treasured destinations.”

The Mansion has launched a prize-winning Young Writers’ Competition among students from area schools and Berry will judge the finalists and be on hand to meet the contestants when it culminates with the awards presentation at 6 p.m. the night of the Gala. Trustee and Gala co-Chair Michael DiScala said, “The Gala promises to offer an evening of great entertainment; it will also be a unique opportunity to support education and our nation’s history, while surrounded by the beauty and splendor of this iconic mansion.” 

Guests will also be invited to preview the Mansion’s new exhibit, Hidden Treasures: Artifacts from the LMMM Collection. Rarely seen artifacts and exquisite decorative arts objects from the Lockwood and Mathews families will be on view, giving visitors a glimpse into the personal lives and styles of the Mansion’s former occupants. The exhibit will include a magnificent silver inkwell with cherubs designed by Tiffany & Co., among other rare artifacts.

The Museum’s Gala is sponsored by M.F. DiScala & Company, Inc., Klaff’s, Mimi and David Findlay Jr., People’s United Bank, and media sponsor Connecticut Cottages and Gardens. All Gala marketing materials have been designed by TFI Envision, Inc.

The black-tie evening includes cocktails, a silent auction, and dinner catered by Michael Gilmartin of Outdoor Cookers. Gala tickets are $200 for Rotunda seats and $150 for the Adjoining Room. For information or to purchase tickets, call 203-838-9799 ext. 4, or email info@lockwoodmathewsmansion.com.

Shoreline Jewish Festival

Sponsored by: Chabad of the Shoreline

Guilford, CT—The 9th annual Shoreline Jewish Festival will take place Sunday, August 10, from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM on the Guilford Green. The festival features various styles of Jewish music, traditional and Israeli fair food (all kosher), an art and book sale, and children’s crafts and activities.
“The festival celebrates Jewish life and living,” explains Rabbi Yossi Yaffe, director of Chabad of the Shoreline and coordinator of the event. “The music, the food, the entertainment—people of all ages and backgrounds enjoy it and have come to regard it as a Shoreline summer tradition.”
This year’s musical lineup features the Jay Gitlin Quartet, The Jazz Rabbi & his Minyan, and The Klezmen.
The Jay Gitlin Quartet gets the audience on their feet dancing with their lively horas and freilachs. Jay Gitlin of North Branford is a musical director, keyboard player and percussionist who has over five decades of experience in playing dance music. As co-founder of the Bales-Gitlin Band, Jay has played at thousands of celebrations—and over 2,000 weddings! The quartet will recreate the energy and joy of a Jewish wedding on the Guilford Green.
Next up will be The Jazz Rabbi and his Minyan, featuring Rabbi Greg Wall, David Morgan and Matt Modell. Rabbi Wall is a jazz and klezmer virtuoso who helped define a new genre of Jewish Jazz, influencing a whole generation of young artists. Today he also serves as the rabbi of Beit Chaverim Synagogue in Westport, CT, where he continues to combine prayer and jazz, Psalms and saxophone to uplift and inspire.
The Klezmen are a four-piece band from West Hartford specializing in klezmer music and popular Jewish favorites. Joel Schlank and his talented musicians play a rich and lively mix of music that laughs and cries, dances, soars and dives to reach the hearts and souls of their audience.
Children and adults can explore the ancient Temple in Jerusalem through a hands-on, interactive presentation. Biblical stories will come to life as participants create models of the Temple, the priestly garb, and some of the sweet-smelling spices used in ancient worship.
Artists and artisans will be selling a variety of Judaica, jewelry, clothing and art work. Books, videos and games of Jewish interest for both children and adults will be available for sale. Festival-goers can choose from a variety of (kosher) fair favorites, including hamburgers, hot dogs, falafel (an Israeli fried chickpea specialty), schwarma grilled chicken, potato knishes, homemade doughnuts, cotton candy, sno cones, and more.
Children will enjoy an inflatable slide, obstacle course and bouncers sponsored by Sound Spectrum Entertainment of Wallingford. They can also try their hand at a variety of Jewish-themed arts & crafts projects.
Admission is free. Food, crafts, and vendor items are for sale. Mr. Boris Mizhen is the primary festival sponsor. Additional sponsorship is provided by the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven, Sound Spectrum Entertainment of Wallingford, Cherry Hill Construction, and Goody’s Hardware. For more information, visit www.shorelinejewishfestival.com. Artists can reserve a booth for the day for a fee of $85.To help sponsor this unique event, or to reserve a booth, please contact Rabbi Yaffe at (203) 453-5580 or at chabad@snet.net.
