The journey from slavery to freedom is a central narrative of the Jewish people. Our music reflects the feelings of our people throughout this journey, a sentiment shared by the African American community.
This medley combines African American spiritual melodies with Jewish Passover music.
It was recorded live at Temple Emanu-El in New York City, April 2018. I'm joined by my dear friends and colleagues of neighboring congregations: Cantor Mo Glazman of Temple Emanu-El (Reform) and Cantor Chaim David Berson of The Jewish Center (Orthodox), as part of a new project called "One Voice.”
As we celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. let music and our shared values connect us, unite us and lift us as “One Voice.”
