Kenny Ellis is perfectly at home performing at a Catskill’s resort, The Copacabana, The Improv, the Miami Beach club scene, a kibbutz, army camp or the national radio in Israel – or the stage in any synagogue here or abroad. With early career years spent working his way through the New York performing arts scene, from Broadway to upstate, Ellis counts singing with Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach z”l at the Roosevelt Hotel as one of the highlights of his career.

Ellis is most well known for his 2005 Hanukkah Swings CD, still a consistent top seller in its category on Amazon Music. “Part of my life’s work has been discovering new entertaining avenues to show what Jewish life can be. [The CD] is a celebration of Jewish life and music, not just for people of our culture and faith, but for everybody,” Ellis says of this work.

When he’s not performing or teaching, the Philadelphia-born Ellis serves as the cantor at Temple Beth Ami in Santa Clarita, CA (Los Angeles area), where he has worked since 2010. Prior to Temple Beth Ami, he was the cantor at Temple Beth Haverim in Agoura Hills, CA for 15 years.

Newburgh, NY – Tito Puente Jr. carries his father with him – imprinted on his physical being and locked in his soul. It’s in his looks, his joy, his music. No doubt, every time Tito Jr. walks on stage – he walks in his father’s footsteps. Now, on Saturday, May 11, 2019, Tito takes the stage of the Historic Green Room in Newburgh’s Ritz Theater. 

The Tito Puente Jr. Latin Jazz Ensemble, with special guests the Mexican Dance Band Mariachi Aquila y Plata along with dancers from Beacon’s Dojo Dance Company, will be performing at a special benefit Dance Party/Concert on Saturday, May 11 at 8 p.m. in the Historic Green Room at Newburgh’s Ritz Theater (107 Broadway, Newburgh, NY 12550).  Proceeds benefit SAFE HARBORS OF THE HUDSON. Puente plans to shake up the audience with all the excitement of a night at the New York Palladium. The Puente name is synonymous with Latin music, especially in the dance-oriented sub-genres of mambo, cha-cha, and salsa, but also in the jazz world.
 “My father’s big band arrangements from the 1940s and 1950s brought the horn sections and combined them with the Afro-Cuban sounds of the conga, timbale and the bongo. For many listeners, the gateway into the musical world of Puente was through the song “Oye Como Va.” Originally released in 1963, it was picked up and recorded by guitarist Carlos Santana in 1970. The popularity of the song helped boost both his and Santana’s careers.
 
Now, the 45-year-old son is on a mission to bring his father’s music to the world, music that vibrates at the intersection of big-band jazz and Latin rhythms. To do this music justice, you can’t skimp on the horns: Puente’s orchestra includes baritone, tenor and alto sax, one or two trombones and two trumpets. “That’s something that’s lacking today,” he notes. “They don’t have that power of the brass section.” A five-piece rhythm section, with conga, timbales, bass, piano and trap set, completes the ensemble.

The Mexican Dance band Mariach Aquila y Plata is a crowd favorite, performing Mexican classics as well as dance favorites, while dancers from the Dojo Dance Company will be giving a pre-concert dance lesson in Mambo and Salsa and dancing during the concert as well with willing audience members.

(reposted from A Kidney for Del web-site)

Hi. This is Chelle (Cordero-Engelman),  I am Bobi (& Del) Du-Bois’ sister. I hope this note finds you well. I wanted to reach out to you.

We are desperately attempting to find a suitable donor for a kidney. Del is currently on dialysis and is in End Stage Kidney Disease. A living donor (blood type O) offers him the best chance for an extended life and more time with his family. Del is loved by so many.

Del is registered with RJWBarnabas Health (NJ) and a few other hospitals.  We are asking for your help in reaching the masses, a lot of reaching out is done via emails and social media, it CAN reach the right person who can save Del’s life (it’s happened before). Please email it, post it on Facebook, tweet it on Twitter and all of you social media sites. Tell your friends about it any way you can.

We have a web site set up where we are also posting many of the letters that have been written on Del’s behalf. Go to https://kidney4del.wordpress.com/ to see it; scroll down to see individual posts.

We are asking for 3 things:

#1- Would you please write a few lines (a post) about what Del means to you, something about your relationship, or something about Del’s contributions (it can be any or all so long as it comes from the heart). Also any digital pics of you and Del (or Del in family situations) would also be appreciated. We want people to know how important he is to the people around him.

#2- Would you please forward this site (in entirety or individual posts) to all of your email contacts, local organizations, houses of worship, unions, etc.? Also post on Facebook and/or Twitter. This will help get the word out. To forward an individual post click on the heading of that post first. Please forward this to family members and friends.

#3- If you, and this is admittedly the hardest request for me to make, or anyone you know might be a compatible LIVING donor, please consider having yourself tested. For more information about kidney donation, visit the National Kidney Center  or RWJBarnabus.  You can visit (most) local hospitals for the initial blood tests, bring in the referral form from RWJBarnabus, download it HERE: st barnabus referral only — please be sure to use his name, Del Du-Bois. Getting tested is no obligation.

Please consider doing any or all of the above, anything you can do will help. Del’s life truly hangs on this, thank you.

If you submit a letter, please write from your heart — I can fill in the necessary referral info for the post. Please email your words to me at  ChelleCordero@gmail.com  and put “Del” in the subject line. It can be just a few lines or a full letter, it all helps. Also please forward this email (or send me their email) to anyone you know who might want to contribute to this effort.

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for your help and prayers,

With love,

Chelle.

NEW WINDSOR, N.Y. (January 31, 2019) — The months of December through February bring cold weather and increased reports of influenza across the U.S. Recently, virulence has been growing in New York City and the surrounding areas. Mobile Life Support Services, the largest emergency medical provider in the Hudson Valley, shares safety tips and advice for adults and children to prevent the development and spread of the flu this season, which can last into the spring months.

There are two types of flu viruses, A and B, that affect humans, and there are multiple strains of each type of virus. Of the various strains of the virus, experts must identify which are likely to be most prominent in the coming year and develop vaccines. Receiving the vaccine can reduce the risk of illness from 30 to 60 percent, according to the CDC. Flu shots may be administered at doctors’ offices, pharmacies, health centers, and some offices, schools and colleges.

“Each year, the flu affects millions of people across the country. Individuals who are immunocompromised in any way, including the elderly and young children, are the most susceptible to becoming infected and can be more severely affected,” said Mobile Life President & CEO Scott Woebse. “Practicing good health habits can help protect you and your loved ones from the spread of germs and prevent respiratory illnesses like the flu.”

In addition to receiving the flu shot, Mobile Life recommends these tips to help prevent the development of influenza this year:

Wash your hands. Washing your hands often with soap and water will help protect you and everyone you come in contact with from spreading infection. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer is a great alternative to limit the spread of bacteria, but washing hands is still the most effective way to reduce the spread of any virus.
Avoid close contact. If you know family members, coworkers or fellow students are suffering from flu-like symptoms, avoid close contact with them. If you are ill, keep your distance from others to avoid getting them sick.
Stay home. If possible, stay home from work or school and avoid running errands when you are sick to prevent the spread of illness.
Cover your mouth and nose. Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when sneezing or coughing to help prevent the spread of germs to those around you.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth. The spread of germs is fostered by touching something that’s contaminated and then touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
Develop a healthy lifestyle. Getting the recommend eight hours of sleep, being physically active, drinking fluids and eating nutritious foods can help prevent illness.
Clean often. Cleaning and disinfecting your home or workspace will also help prevent the spread of germs. Increase your cleaning routine when you or someone you know is sick.
