Eleanor Shapiro: Jewish Music Matters

Music offers a unique means of engaging emotion and spirituality, social solidarity, and cultural affirmation. It also demonstrates the mutual influences experienced by cultures living in proximity to one another over time. Spread throughout the world over two millennia, Jewish music has evolved into myriad traditions as well as innovative creative forms. This four-session series will explore highlights of this rich musical legacy, focusing on the modern era.

4 sessions: Sundays, April 24, May 1, 15, 22 @ 11am-12:30 pm. Virtual on Zoom
