Sample Program 1

From Hallelujah to Hatikva to Rocky, Israeli and Jewish Themes Through Music and Pop Culture:
Come experience a musical and cultural journey through this interactive multimedia master class. We will explore how Israeli and Jewish themes are pervasive in our culture, what makes these themes so powerful, and consider how their meaning has evolved over the past 2000 years. The inspiration for this master class is based on Bodi’s internationally performed original composition “Hope Beyond,” in celebration of Israel’s 70th. The underscore music playing beneath this video is “Hope Beyond,” as played live.
