A Joyous Concert by Israeli Performing Artist, Cantor Shim Craimer
Sponsored by the Nat z”l and Bea Taubenfeld Fund
In honor of Yom Yerushalayim, the anniversary of the unification of Jerusalem in 1967

Sunday, May 24, 12 noon

 

Shim Craimer moved to Israel with his family as Olim Chadashim, in 2018, after spending 15 years in New York. Originally from London, he was appointed chazzan of the Riverdale Jewish Center in 2003. His astoundingly beautiful tenor voice can be heard at the pulpit of a Shul, in concert, or alongside orchestras and ensembles. An accomplished pianist, Shim studied music at the Royal Academy of Music in London. He travels around the US, Europe, and Israel, davening and performing.

Shim returns once a month to the Riverdale Jewish Center and synagogues around the US for Smachot and other events. He is a close friend of Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks, and they travel and work on many projects together. Shim has released albums in a variety of musical styles, including family zemirot by Koren Publishing to accompany their new Birkon. His first solo mainstream album, "Forever More / Me'atah V'ad Olam," was entirely self-produced. He is currently working on new productions in the Jewish and mainstream fields. His most recent album, "American Classics," brings an inspiring message with each song. He has made several You Tube videos, including "Tzaddik Katamar," accompanied by his twin boys. His second video for Nefesh Bnefesh tells the story of his family's Aliyah. "Vaani," soon to be released, was filmed in his new hometown shul in Modiin. 

Shim and his wife, Ruthie, have four children — Uri, Ben, Eli, and Mia.
