My children attend a Hebrew day school and a large part of their Jewish heritage was learned through song. As I listened with them, I heard the tragedy of Jewish suffering as well as the joy of Jewish survival. Some of these melodies lent themselves to interpretation, so I decided to record a few on a nylon string guitar. My hope was to modernize these songs and make them accessible and enjoyable to people from all walks of life. I hope you enjoy listening to this CD as much as I enjoyed making it.
