All-Star Women's Concert

An all-star cast of Crown Heights musicians and vocalists will sing for an only-women concert benefiting the Levi Yitzchok Library.

The Crown Heights Levi Yitzchok Library is proud to present its premier fundraiser evening 'A Night of Lights' gala concert for women.

In true collaborative spirit, a group of Crown Heights' star performers are joining together on the last night of Chanukah, the 1st of Tevet (Wednesday, December 4th) to create an elegant, exclusive concert in support of the library.

In line with the library's vision to nurture community creativity, the intimate, 100-seater concert, hosted in the library itself, will offer opportunity for women and girls to share in the deep and rich experience of Jewish music at its best.

With a steaming beverage and gourmet treats in hand, attendees can look forward to enjoying a bright ‘Night of Lights’ featuring Australian-born singer/songwriter Sara Hecht with songs from her new debut album 'Pieces'; classically trained soprano, Chava Shapiro accompanied by acclaimed pianist, Mirele Rosenberger, with a treat of Yiddishe favourites; celebrated songstress Esther Freeman and her empowering hit-music; BulletProof Stockings and a veritable feast for the soul with their acoustic special feature titled ‘Niggunim Unplugged’; Melbourne-born singer/songwriter Rivka Leah Cylich and her yet-to-be-released new songs performed with harmonist Shei Brummel and guitarist/drummer Sheina Mushka Goldstein; Californian born-artist Riv Eilfort and her resonating, soulful originals; and pianist/composer Sarah Dukes with a score of her soothing, melodic piano arrangements.

Tickets are selling fast online ($25 online, $35 at the door) and women and girls are encouraged to book their seats now at


Children are also invited to join in Chanukah celebrations at the library this Sunday 12-4pm, with special children’s activities and story hour.

The Library has continued many of its popular summer programs including the Wednesday Musical Mommy and Me, Sunday Story Hour, Young Readers Book Club, Women’s Chavurah Night and are set to launch a host of new initiatives.

To no.5
From what I understand, I could be wrong though, Bullet proof stockings are the ultra thick/brown stockings that the chassidishe women of Satmer, Bobov, Vishnitz etc wear; theyre meant to be the ultimate in tznious as theres no way that the legs can be seen ever; some even have a seam at the back too; not sure what this has to do with the song though, so I may just be completely wrong on this. if i am , can someone put forward the correct answer as to what it means, because there seems to be no connection to the concert if i am right?

bulletproof stockings is a band. their explanation is that our tznius is bulletproof ie it is our armor and we take it seriously. not supposed to have anything to do with the actual stockings that chassishe women wear
