Melodies of the Russian Jews

Before the crossing; before America, before Israel, there was the Pale. Russia, a place of faith, family, longing and adversity. Memories of that time and place are preserved in Russian Jewish melodies that have been sung around the world.
Kolot HaLev introduces these melodies to you along with others from the Shoah, Israel, and modern Russia that echo the heart and soul of the Jewish people. These songs traversed cultures and geographical boundaries, and in the process took on an entirely new identity, came to serve a new purpose, and inspire new, very different generations of people.
Joining Kolot HaLev are Cantor Natasha Hirschhorn and an array of virtuoso instrumentalists.
Admission: $18 adults ($20 at the door) $6 Students & Children
