Celebration of Jewish Music Concert: Darshan Project

The Second Annual Festival of Jewish Music will feature the Darshan Project from Brooklyn, New York. Darshan (meaning myth maker or seeker) is a multi-media musical ensemble that combines a deep love for Jewish text and tradition with a radical commitment to creative inspiration and cultural innovation. At it’s core, Darshan is a musical project that brings together the soul-stirring melodies of Shir Yaakov Feit and Basya Schecter with the spine-tingling rap/poetry of Eden Pearlstein. Each song is equal parts Melody, Poetry, Prayer, and D’var Torah. Click here for more information on the band. Concert free thanks to the generous donations of the Kerkers, Jesers, Greenblatts, and Williams families.
