In this beautifully-written novel, a composer of Jewish sacred music travels to Israel to recover from a relationship she once had there, and thanks to the power of music, begins coming to terms with her lost love.
We are proud and very excited to announce that the MNjcc has recently been awarded a grant from the JCC Association’s centennial initiative: Making Music Happen. The grant is to help JCCs celebrate the past and future of Jewish life in their JCC and across North America, creating a communal soundtrack of JCCs – through creativity, collaboration and community.
