  • The Music of Israel: 1917-1947

    JCDS, 57 Stanley Street, Watertown, MA
    Sunday, March 5, 2017 - 10:20am to 11:45am

    On several Sundays this year, we will be hosting a series of programs open to all adults (and teens too!) in the community. These programs were initiated by parent interest and will be led by members of the CDT community.

    On this Sunday, join Hayim Kobi as he traces the origins of Israeli music. This lecture focuses on the years leading to the formation of the state of Israel. The immigration waves between 1917 and 1947 yielded new song forms and styles that blended Eastern European with Middle Eastern conventions. Among the pioneers who built the foundation of Israel, emerged a new generation of composers and poets who set the musical background to the historical events of that period.

     Hayim Kobi is a local authority on the history of 20th century music, delivering talks about wide-ranging topics from Jazz and Folk to the great composers and performers of popular music. His talks are rich with audio and video media and focus on the music within its historical context.

     

  • Intro to Talmud Spring Session

    60 Highland St: Library
    Tuesday, March 7, 2017 - 7:30pm to 9:15pm
     This fall’s class on Chametz and Responsibility in the Talmud was so fun, we have to keep going. In this class we will continue to explore the question of what the Talmud is. What did the rabbis think they were doing? What value can we find in encountering these stories and conversations? We will focus on texts exploring the power of words and locating Jewish authority through the power to interpret. No previous experience necessary- all are welcome! Please RSVP to Rabbi Shahar (dcl [at] dorsheitzedek.org) so she can anticipate materials.
     
    Tuesday evenings, 7:30-9:15pm
    March 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th, April 4th
