“It’s special to sit down and sing with old friends! Bearing melodies and harmonies, folks travelled from as far as New Orleans and Philadelphia to make this music together. On one night, a twenty five person spontaneous Jewish choir joined us, including many from Mechon Hadar’s Spiritual Sounds Laboratory, and thus we were able to capture some of the amazing and unscripted sounds of everyday people singing together. Thanks to all who made this music!”

Thank you to the Kane Street Synagogue for hosting the recording sessions!
