We Are Open On Saturdays For Dinner!
s original musicals make for a 20-
year tradition at the Birmingham
Temple, this season's production pays
tribute to Rabbi Sherwin Wine.
The Days of Wine and Moses, written
by retired attorney Milton Landau
and Dr. Arthur Rose, celebrates the
rabbi's 75th birthday and marks his
retirement after 40 years of service.
Landau and -Rose, the creative team
that develops these original programs,
add new lyrics to popular songs to
convey the themes introduced through
dialogue and narration. In this case,
they want to emphasize Rabbi Wine's
leadership in Humanistic Judaism.
"This will be a very gala event,"
Landau says. "We mix humorous
and serious songs for a constant
change of pace."
The Templesingers will be featured
along with soloists holding singing
and speaking parts. The show's title
and opening song derive from the
song "Days of Wine and Roses."
"We're presenting songs with lyrics
to represent the rabbi's life," explains
Landau, who started the musicals as
part of services and then moved on to
independent productions. "Among the
songs are 'My Way' and 'I'll See You
Again.' We've also taken the song
`Gonna Build a Mountain' and turned
it into 'Gonna Build a Temple.'"
The program, free and open to the
public, begins 8 p.m. Friday, May 16,
at the temple, 28611 W. 12 Mile Road,
in Farmington Hills. (248) 477-1410.

get a chance to see her on stage
when the national touring company
appears at Detroit's Fox Theatre.
Dora the Explorer Live! — Search for
the City of Lost Toys, is planned to
engage audiences while using a variety
of learning techniques. Just as she does
on television, the Latina heroine teaches
Spanish words or phrases to audiences
and then asks them to use the words to
solve problems and forge ahead.
The program, seen 10 a.m. and 11
a.m. weekdays on Nickelodeon and 7
a.m. Sundays on CBS, moves to stage
with adventures that take place in an
imaginary, tropical world filled with
jungles, beaches and rainforests.

anger-songwriter Craig Taubman is
known for his recordings that cele-
brate Jewish holidays, but his latest
release has a more worldly perspective.
Celebrate Peace, which includes 13
tracks from nationally known Jewish
artists, is an eclectic mix of styles and
languages that point to this one theme.
From the Sephardic notes of Consuela
Luz to the multi-sourced melodies of
the three members of Yom Hadash,
the theme plays out in many forms.
" Celebrate Peace aims to share
melodies, words and prayers that
active show for preschoolers and their
families that helps her fans experience
this wonderful character in a whole
new way," says Stuart Rosenstein,
Nickelodeon vice president.
The stage production, which runs
for 90 minutes, including a 20-minute
intermission, includes many of the TV
characters and is aimed at children
The musical was written by Chris
Gifford, who created the TV show
with Valerie Walsh and Eric Weiner.
Gifford serves as executive producer
of the TV show, with Walsh as pro-
ducer and Weiner as producer and

hopefully-will bring the listener a
measure of comfort and introspection
while at the same time inspiring peo-
ple to practice, teach, embrace, pursue
and celebrate peace," says Taubman, a
frequent performer in Michigan.
Debbie Friedman, for example, sings
"Oseh Shalom," asking for "peace to us
and to all Israel." Theodore Bikel, with
"Al.Kol Eileh," prays for protection.
Taubman, who asks for peace through
his song "Sim Shalom," will donate half
of his net proceeds from the recording,
which sells for $15, to Magen David
Adorn, Israel's equivalent to the Red
Cross. To order: wvvw.craigtaubman.com .
