Featuring Turkish Hazzan/Rabbi Nissim Elnecave of Mexico who elucidated the inspiring words and melodies for us.
Featuring Sephardic Music Guru Dr. Judith Cohen and Company. Dr. Cohen performed Judeo-Spanish songs from different regions (including ones in Hakatiya) and compared Bulgarian Ladino music with traditional Bulgarian. There was a special appearance by godmother of Ladino music Flory Jagoda--originally from Sarajevo--who shared that her "nona" (grandmother) used to always say that we must continue in this way (our traditions). Thanks to the Embassy of Bulgaria for partnering with SHIN-DC, as we endeavor to do so and build bridges in the District.
Featuring special guest Moroccan Hazzan David Louk and an awesome Sephardic BBQ. We also learned traditional songs for Lag La'Omer.
