As the eyes of the world are on Israel because of its national election, join us on a virtual aliyah to Jerusalem with Cantor Schwartz, as he prepared to collaborate with the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra this past year. The piece they performed together, Mechaye Hametim (“Resurrection of the Dead”) by Israeli composer Noam Sheriff, tells the story of the Jewish homeland from diaspora to nationhood – a nation whose 75th birthday we look forward to celebrating musically in the spring.
You can find the whole concert album, Yizkor: Music of Memory and Tribute, here. Wishing you warm thoughts and memories of Israel, and a Shabbat Shalom.
