Through the years I have learned many poems and songs of the Jewish Folklore in Hebrew, Yiddish and Judeo-Spanish. I have sung for children and adults and taught for both. I have discovered that each song is a story, a prayer an event in somebody's life, happy or sad. I have discovered how to love Israel from far away. We all know that each melody stays forever in our memory and the moment we hear it again no matter how many years after that melody will connect us to the people we have met, to emotions and special moments or places.
Word and Melody, two strong elements that build up our Identity.
I invite you to keep on building up our young generations Jewish Identity and the love for Israel via song.
Let me help you in doing so.
