The Songs of Jewish Jazz

Jordan Klapman

Jordan Klapman is a popular music lecturer and performer specializing in the Great American Songbook and Jewish music of all kinds. His unique presentations of the music of Broadway greats make him a much-sought after “edutainer” throughout Canada and the United States. 

This program is presented in partnership with Active Seniors & Boomers at MNJCC.
