Elements of Jewish Gospel shares a legacy of Jewish music that is unique. Similar to the songs that fueled the Civil Rights movement, this show introduces audiences to African-American-Jewish melodies that were sung across generations, at times of love, at times of protest, in times of faith, and when faced with despair, but chiefly as affirmations of hope in the face of adversity.
This lovely collection of ballads, spirituals, folk songs, and hip-hop testify to an adherence to justice as life’s primary directive, and to an abiding faith that injustice will not persist uncorrected. Enjoy ancient melodies inspired by biblical narratives of the Exodus, prophets, and psalms and contemporary music inspired by Rastafarian reggae, John Lennon, and India Arie. Experience Elements of Jewish Gospel as an opportunity to claim and reclaim the tradition of integrating spirituality within the discipline of Justice.
