Songs My Fathers Taught Me

As so often happens in non-mainstream movements, the directors of ACE were both raised within traditional Jewish communities; in Jeff's case, an Orthodox home with Holocaust-survivor parents. In this session, Jeff uses a discussion of the evolution of Jewish music from ancient to modern times as a springboard for a humorous look at 28 years of work within the Neo-Pagan community, through the eyes of a pantheistic social libertarian with a psychedelic spiritual orientation. From cantorials to Shabbas Zmiros to Israeli folk songs of the sixties, and accompanied on the Israeli recorder, Jeff will share melodies and insights to echo down the halls of his unique multi-cultural "long strange trip".
