No Longer Strangers: Prayer and Music in the Jewish African American Tradition

Tuesday, September 25 | 7:30PM | BJ Community House Sukkah
Much like Ashkenazic nigunim and Mizrahpiyut melodies, the music of the African American spiritual tradition, heard in familiar songs like “Motherless Child” and “Wade in the Water,” are part of a rich history that define a Jewish African American experience. Join BJ member Zakai Ben Chaim and BJ Music Director Dan Nadel for a unique musical collaboration exploring the cultural and spiritual significance of this powerful music as it is now being enfolded into our global Jewish identity and shaping a shared belief, history, and language. Limited seating is available for this special evening in the BJ Community Sukkah. Register here to join us!
