Just North United Church of Christ, in partnership with Temple Israel, is proud to present our next Concert for a Cause, headlined by national touring singer-songwriter, RJ Cowdery.

This concert will benefit The Women’s Center, a residential treatment program of Maryhaven, that houses approximately 36 women and their children. The Women’s Center provides addiction recovery and mental health services to adult women suffering from substance use disorder in Franklin County. The majority of these women are below poverty level, and many have been victims of human trafficking and domestic violence.

Tickets are $20 general admission, $40 per family, and can be purchased online here or at the door. Additional donations will also be accepted.  More information can be found on the  Concert for a Cause Facebook page (share with friends!), and at  Just North UCC.

RJ Cowdery, our headliner, has garnered accolades at Mountain Stage NewSong, Kerrville, Falcon Ridge, Wildflower! Arts and Music, Rocky Mountain Folk Festival, and Sisters Folk Festival. With a voice like butter, she sings lyrics that are sincere and plainspoken, inviting her listeners to lean in hard and come out the other side changed. Based in Columbus, she tours the US and has appeared twice on the American Public Television series, Songs at the Center, and has been a featured act on TEDxColumbus.

Her latest CD, What If This Is All There Is, was released in March.


Cantor Bat-Ami Moses has been a guest artist, prayer leader and scholar in residence at synagogues throughout the country. A native of Los Angeles, she has performed with other renowned Jewish artists, including Billy Jonas, Dan Nichols and Rick Recht.
Having performed off-Broadway, she is heard on many recordings, such as Kol Bat-Ami, and Bo Nashir, Come Sing With Me!, her original Jewish kids music, and on The Best of Jewish Children's Music Spirit Series, produced by the Cantor's Assembly.

It is Cantor Moses' passion and vision to elevate people to their own prayer and healing through the languages of music and liturgy intertwined.


The concert is hosted by singer-songwriter Eric Gnezda, creator and host of the PBS television series, Songs at the Center and founder of Concerts for a Cause. As a singer-songwriter, he performs regularly at Nashville’s iconic venue for songwriters, The Bluebird Café, and is the recipient of the Ohioana Citation for Music Composition, joining Michael Feinstein (American Songbook), Jorma Kaukonen (Jefferson Airplane), and Chip Davis (Mannheim Steamroller). He is an Emmy- nominated journalist.
