DISCUSSION AND PERFORMANCE JUDAH HALEVI IN WORD AND SOUND – POETRY, PIYYUT, AND LITURGY
Monday, January 13, 2014 | 7:00 pm
The writing of Judah Halevi bridges poetry and piyyut, secular text and religious liturgy. Join anthropologist and vocalist Galeet Dardashti, professor Raymond Scheindlin, and cantor Emanuel Shalom, together with musicians, as they trace the origins and cultural context and bring to life – through discussion and performance – the sound of Halevi’s words and poems.
The program complements Yeshiva University Museum’s exhibition, Threshold to the Sacred: The Ark Door of Cairo’s Ben Ezra Synagogue. Guests are invited to visit the exhibition before the program, beginning at 5:00 pm.
