Join Kahal B’raira and Levyosn for a special concert inspired by Havdalah, the ritual on Saturday at sundown that marks the separation between the end of Shabbat and the beginning of the week. The evening will begin with a humanist version of the Havdalah ritual and continue with a set of traditional and original songs that interweave the symbols and sounds of the Havdalah experience with our love for community and the natural world.

Performers include world-music aficionado, singer and multi-instrumentalist Lysander Jaffe, beloved Yiddish singer-songwriter Adah Hetko, and in-demand pianist and musicologist Uri Schreter.

The Levyson (Ashkenazi Hebrew for “Leviathan”) is a mythical sea creature traveling the world’s oceans collecting songs, krill and dreams. Like our namesake, we, the Boston-based ensemble Levyosn, love to spend our time in joyful play. While we specialize in Yiddish song and klezmer, we also sing in Hebrew, Ladino and English and draw from adjacent Eastern European folk traditions. Our harmony-rich approach to both Yiddish folksong and our original compositions makes our music unique. We love to share our deep knowledge and connection to Yiddish culture and Jewish tradition with our audiences. And we love to get our audiences to sing and dance with us, building community wherever we go.

This project is supported by a grant from the Combined Jewish Philanthropies Arts & Culture Community Impact Grant Fund.
