The Museum of Jewish Heritage – A Living Memorial to the Holocaust has started a new concert series, “Modern Jewish Sounds,” featuring contemporary Jewish musicians performing in the Museum’s Edmond J. Safra Hall. In-person and virtual tickets are available; the suggested donation, $10, is to support the museum’s work and public programming. The series kicked off on August 18 with Kami Maltz, a Tel Aviv- and Brooklyn-based musician, and her newly formed ensemble.
The series continues on Thursday, September 8, with the Detroit-born, Berlin-based troubadour Daniel Kahn, who will share his music, which mixes Yiddish, English, Russian, and German with a punk and folk flavor.
The third concert in the series, set for Thursday, September 22, features the Jake Sherman Dream Band. The series concludes on Sunday, October 2, the Brooklyn-based Tel Aviv native Dida Pelled and her band.
“We are excited for our visitors to experience these great contemporary Jewish artists,” the museum’s president and CEO, Jack Kliger, said. “Music is a universal language, and it is an honor to give these talented musicians a stage to share their art and Jewish culture.”
Tickets to the Modern Jewish Sounds series are free with a suggested donation of $10. Virtual and in-person tickets are available. It is made possible with funding and support from the Battery Park City Authority. For more information, go to mjhnyc.org or call (646) 437-4202.
