We are excited to share with you a musical performance of the works of Jewish poets and composers whose music reflects the climate of their time while still holding on to the Jewish values and the Jewish identity. From different regions we will hear songs of gratitude for the land that was once called home, and the common tensions experienced in those lands. The images that will accompany the traditional songs will further tell the story of Jews of the Former Soviet Union and the surrounding regions in diaspora. With the collaboration of Jewish performing artists from various parts of the world who are now settled in the United States, it is an invitation to reconnect through music to our common experience of immigration and what it means to our Jewish identity in the new land.
Reception will follow after the performance.
This project was created as part of the COJECO BluePrint Fellowship supported by COJECO and Genesis Philanthropy Group.
